Warm Springs Rapid


We just got back from a six day Holiday Green River trip 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 special occasion – 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 – and 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 – and 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 an 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!

Susan and Don Katz and the Katz/Highfield family
