Lodore Canyon Green River - Poetry Inspired by a river tripPoetry Inspired by a river trip


If I Had Drifted Along

that echoed sounds for miles…

and had I flown through the spray

from swift rapids that carved

an array of rock forms

tangled with the earths plates,

that shoot into the clear blue sky…

for the Moose, Deer, Big Horn sheep

and all wildlife to thrive…

The cool waterfalls

that refreshed while hiking..

to hear the stories of pioneers

braving these territories

from our personable guides


who took care in leading,

hiking…laughing….singing and

preparing great meals

for this wonderful group

of friends new and old….


If only I had, many years ago

leaving would NOT have been the plan….

So I know sometime in the future

I will be returning when I can!

Featured Review for Lodore Canyon:

Excellent trip! The whole crew was great – guides and guests. We loved having 4 strong, cheerful, and competent women guides. They kept the camp neat and organized, conversation flowing and educational, food fresh and delicious, river days and nights memorable. Lots of beautiful hikes and views, Native American petroglyphs and pictographs. Easy roads trip to and from the put in and take out. We have been on many trips with Holiday, starting with Desolation Canyon when my daughters were young. And now my youngest daughter Claudia is a Holiday River Guide! Holiday offers the best-guided experiences for families, couples and even singles to explore all the rivers and canyons have to offer. The guides are the best, always cheerful and competent. Just enough guidance and great camp set-ups, that allow you to experience the wonder of the great outdoors, safely and comfortably. A trip with Holiday will change your life!
