I just returned home from an awesome white water raft trip. I did the Lower Canyon Motorized Trip with Hike In on August 6th. I loved the hike into the Grand Canyon, especially knowing that a big blue boat was waiting for me at the river! On the way down the Bright Angel trail, we passed the folks who were hiking out from their Upper Canyon Trip, they were happy, enthused and made us so excited for the rafting trip ahead of us!
I used hiking poles on this hike, which I hadn’t used in the past, and I really was glad to have them! I would recommend hiking poles to those of you who are hiking into or out of a Grand Canyon expedition.
White water rafting trips are ALWAYS fun and we definitely had a blast. We had such a fun, diverse group of folks. Certain passengers who had traveled all over the world, noted that one day in particular where we hiked tons and saw a few incredible slot canyons, had been one of their top 5 best days of their lives!
I love being a part of a company, Grand Canyon Whitewater, that brings that much joy, beauty and awe to people’s lives!
