Because the Green River awaits!
We were a crew of all females,
guides and all!
It’s easy to slide into the flow of river life.
Here was the view from Camp 1
This trip is special because the geology of the
area is unmatched. 44 miles through the river
canyons tells the story of eons.
Scoping rapids is key!
On day 2 we hike to a waterfall.
Always a gift in the desert.
It was nice to freshen up a bit in the FREEZING
cold water. Re took this photo!
Camp 2 gave us a beautiful moonrise
Camp 2 and a mighty moonrise.
And a delicious dinner!
Camp 3 placed us near a pictograph hike.
