White Rim Trail Stargazing
This White Rim Trail bike trip leads you through Canyonlands National Park, which was recently certified as a “Dark Sky Park” by the International Dark Sky Association. We will not only leave our cares in the dust on an exhilarating and scenic bike-tour; but at night we will explore the Milky Way, see the Andromeda Galaxy, watch satellites and meteors, and learn constellations. With both binoculars and naked eyes we can open our imaginations up to the stars. Additionally, on these land-based trips, we will also haul along a nice telescope to peer even deeper into the abyss.
Desolation Canyon Stargazing
A new addition to our 2017 Dark Sky Stargazing trip series! This beautiful Green river canyon has awesome dark sky potential. Desolate but gorgeous and full of life. Join us June 19-23 for 5 days.
Cataract Canyon Stargazing
This Cataract Canyon river rafting trip will be cradled in Canyonlands National Park, recently certified as a “Dark Sky Park” by the International Dark Sky Association. While your days will be spent luxuriating in the sunshine, exploring ancient side-canyons and facing some of the biggest whitewater in North America, your nights will open up a whole new world. Using both binoculars and the naked eye, we will explore the Milky Way, see the Andromeda Galaxy, watch satellites and meteors, and learn constellations.
Lodore Canyon Stargazing
Your Lodore Canyon river rafting trip will flow through Dinosaur National Monument, currently recognized by the National Park Service as a “Sanctuary of Natural Darkness.” On this trip, we will connect to ghosts of river-runners and canyon dwellers of the past, escape into deep-red cliffs and find exhilarating whitewater. During the day float through Whirlpool Canyon and at night peer into the Whirlpool Galaxy; after dinner the night comes alive as we turn our sights upwards to explore the Milky Way, see the Andromeda Galaxy, watch satellites and meteors, and learn constellations, both with binoculars and naked eyes.
