Rafting by definition is “the sport or pastime of traveling down a river on a raft.” Rafting to us is much more. It is the thrill and excitement of rapids. It is the great bonds you make with fellow river rats. It is the journey to discover nature and get back to your roots of wildness. It is the beauty of side canyons and the sounds of wildlife. It is more than one could ever put into words.
A multi-day rafting trip is the ultimate getaway. Not only do you have a chance to disconnect from the strains of modern technology, but you also get to relax and bond with friends, family, strangers, and yourself. If you have been thinking about doing a rafting trip this is the year. Colorado River & Trail Expeditions has some great trips planned in 2014 including an archaeological based rafting trip through Desolation Canyon. We are also planning on heading north to Alaska to run the Alsek and Tatshenshini rivers.
River trips are nice because once you arrive at the meeting point for a trip you don’t have to worry about anything until the trip ends. All of your food, and sleeping accomodations are taken care of. Your only requirement is to sit back and enjoy the place.
