Trip of a Lifetime - 16 Days in the Grand Canyon
In 2009 at age 58, I had the opportunity to spend 16 days rowing, paddling, and hiking side trails along the entire length of the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. This is one of the tremendous trips offered by Arizona Raft Adventures out of Flagstaff, Arizona.
We were a group of 20 ranging in age from early 30's to mid-70's. We traveled in three oar boats and one paddle boat, typically on boats half the day and hiking in the afternoon. We slept under the stars on many nights with a few nights in tents. The food was terrific, the company even better, with 16-days of non-stop views and adventures.
I hope I get to take another of these trips!
