Photos Can’t Quite Capture The Magnitude Of The Canyons

A Whitewater Rafting Trip Down The Green River In Lodore Canyon

2010-07-18-Lodore-1993I was initially concerned about what state the sleeping kits and tents might be in, but was very pleasantly surprised when we got there. No complaints whatsoever. Guides went beyond what I would have expected to keep everybody comfortable, happy and well fed.  The views were spectacular and butt dam falls was a guaranteed kid pleaser. The food was considerably better than I would have expected. Continue to make a fuss about it in your advertising – its good, and I’m a professional chef. And that was even on a trip with fire restrictions so everything was done with propane.

The van ride from Vernal to the put-in was beautiful and how Lane managed to arrange for that rattlesnake to wriggle up to the van when we pulled over was quite a good trick. Neither photos nor DVD images can quite capture the magnitude of the experience. We were overwhelmed by remoteness and beauty at every turn of the road and every bend in the river. The guides only served to enhance the experience, and by the end of the trip they were more like family. We plan on returning to try a different river- maybe the middle fork of the Salmon.
