I am bringing my 10-year-old granddaughter! It looks as though boys predominate on this trip. We are from Missouri, and this will be my third Intergenerational (one in CO and one in SD) and what fun they have been. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Hi! We are in our late (very late) 60's with an old 12 year old grandson. Be interested to see if there are other "older " boys on the trip. We hail from Seattle area.

My wife and I are in our mid to late 70s, and have a 10 year old grandson on this tour. Do any other participants have a similar profile?

Hi Francis: My husband and I (we live in Maryland) are a little younger, but we're bringing our 10 yr old grandson who lives in NJ. We are all sooooooooooo excited! See you Sunday!

Ruth Ann Wood Jul 04, 2013 at 08:49 AM

ONE month, and my husband and grandson and I will be embarking on this adventure together. We are all very excited!!!

I would like to hike in the Grand Canyon more than this program plans. If you would like to share my rental car to hike the free afternoon or the afternoon after the program ends, let me know. We could even dine at El Torvar

Hi Dorothy, that’s a great idea and your group leaders will provide you with some great ideas for hiking opportunities. You might want to consider just staying local in Flagstaff for that free afternoon as there are many great hikes in the mountains here close to your hotel. That, or some folks like to drive down toward Sedona to hike and play in a swim hole. We look forward to meeting you!
