It was a great two weeks in August - SWA's 2008 Grand canyon trip. We had 10 kayaks, 4 rafts and 1 dory. The kayakers did an especially good job, they paddled every bit of the Colorado (well a few of them did swim a little bit of it, but it's all the same). The highlights were big water, 12,000 - 19,000 cfs and it was blue until the Little Colorado, and of course hiking, camping and sleeping for two weeks in this incredible place. Below are a few of the memories
Dates for SWA's 2009 trip are August 9 - 22. We plan on making it a kayak/dory trip with only 16 people. Contact us for the details and sign up soon to be sure to get your spot.
Don't you hate it when a raft gets the best surf!
