Utah River Rafting Desolation Canyon Mud funThoughts

We just got back from a six-day Holiday Green River rafting trip through Desolation Canyon and will be “glowing” with the joy of the experience for a very long time to come. There were 11 of us, and it was a very memorable experience – celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our children and grandchildren. The experience had to be something really special and boy was it ever! Every aspect of the trip was amazing: from our wonderful, warm, thoughtful, professional, and “people/kid” friendly guides, Brian. Malia and Wade, to the food (fantastic and plentiful) – to the sheer grandeur of the scenery!


We hiked and rafted and, those of us so inclined, paddled our “duckies” down the river and through the rapids.  We sang songs around the fire at night while Brian and my granddaughter took turns playing the guitar.  We had a pirate day and a laser night.  We ate s’mores and gourmet meals.   We played cards and charades.  Set up camp in beautiful sites.  We saw Mountain Goats and wild horses.  Swatted some mosquitoes and watched awesome storms with magnificent lightning shows light up the world around us. We found a quiet space in a too hectic world,  felt the stress and the pressure of jobs and school and life slip away in the churning waters of the Green River.


Thank you seems a bit inadequate for such a memorable experience that will last a lifetime and provide us, as a family, with memories we will treasure always.

To all of you at Holiday – our gratitude!
