  1. I had the time of my life… in fact this trip was life changing. I returned home and changed the course of my life or more accurately found my life purpose. I became a naturalist, then a park ranger and then a wilderness ranger and I know it was because of my time floating down the canyon on rafts we rowed ourselves. As the river carried us though the ancient, immense landscape our guides shared stories and adventures with us that seemed to unfold around each bend. Some of the sweetest moments were swimming in the blue, sacred waters of the Little Colorado, exploring side canyons and waterfalls, and watching the swirling starry night sky by campfire. And the hike out was awesome too!
    I wanted to stay forever. Instead that canyon trip has never left my heart.
    Thank you Moki Mac. You couldn’t have known how this trip would touch my life or maybe you could….
    Forever grateful,
