Camping & Floating Along The Green River In Lodore Canyon, Dinosaur National Monument

August 29

13080_Southwest_MerrillThe guides were way above our expectations. Not that we expected a dull trip by any means, but Kerry and Ben made it so much fun. It was my first river trip, and it certainly will NOT be my last.  Toward the end, we were already planning to come again next year and do another trip, maybe on another river. This was one of my best vacations yet!!! Hikes were fun and beautiful, and were well narrated and full of interesting facts. I was pretty scared to get in that kayak by myself and go down the rapids, but it was a total blast!! Ready to go again!!! Food was DELICIOUS!!!!!  I couldn’t believe those guys could prepare such yummy food at EVERY meal!!  And the fact that they had brought it all with them for four days without having to stop at the store, that was amazing! We had a nice chatty ride with Lane up to the canyon, and Kerry and Ben filled us in with all the “rules” and such and things we would expect on the trip. The scenery was beautiful, and the ride was just fine with a quick stop in the middle for a bite to eat since we had gotten up so early and hadn’t had breakfast. When we arrived at the canyon and fitted our life jackets, we loaded the boat and off we went. The trip back to the office was a short one, but we really weren’t ready for the trip to end. Four days of fabulous fun, and then we had to go back home to the real world. IT WAS A TOTAL BLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOVED IT!!  CAN’T WAIT TO GO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
