The Grand Canyon is Calling...

Guess what my dear readers? I'm off on a big adventure! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!

This Friday afternoon I depart for Flagstaff, Arizona to go white water rafting through the Grand Canyon for 14 days (my trip officially starts on the 13th). I'll be covering 225 miles of the Colorado River from Lees Ferry to Diamond Creek. I'm going with a group of 11 other rafters, the majority of which are river guides, so I'll be in really good company. Now I should mention that I've never rafted nor camped a day in my life but I thought it was high time that I experienced both. I guess I'm a "jump into the deep end" kind of gal!

It's really a trip of a lifetime and I'm beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to go. But don't fret! I'll be back before you know it and have lots of great stories and photos to share. Be well everyone! I'll miss you!


  1. LOL, jump into the deep end is right! You're certainly getting "crazy". :)

    Have fun & be safe!

  2. That is beyond AWESOME!!!! I have always wanted to do something like that! I know that you will have an amazing time and I cannot wait to hear about it and see photos!!

  3. You won't always have the opportunity to do that, so why not?

    Have a great time and be safe. I look forward to you photos when you return!

  4. Alright! That should be awesome :) I love river rafting (and camping). The Grand Canyon tour is supposed to be awesome. Best way to do it is via the river! Enjoy!!!!

  5. i had a friend who did this and she had an amazing time. enjoy your adventure!!

  6. If you encounter Pete Weiss say "hi" for me. He's my brother-in-law and he leads some of the river expeditions and I know for a fact he will be leading one starting on the 14th.

    Have a wonderful adventure.
