This trip was everything that I hoped for and more. Great rapids, great rocks, great food and great people. I will never forget floating down the Little Colorado. I agree with what Carl said about the AZRA guides and also the NAU coordinator, Srewart Lasseter, was very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

A great program, loved the river. The ARZA guides (Jack, Clare and Steiner) were great. I liked sleeping out under the stars. A large group 25 but every one stayed together. Enjoyed drinking coffer at 5 in the morning with the group watching the sun come up. The first couple of days were cool wished I brought better rain gear. I would highly recommend this program.

Excellent. BJ Boyle, Jody Tinsley, & April Childress (AZRA)and Matt Turner(Road Scholar)made a great team! They provided geology information and lots of local history, shared legends and stories, and even provided musical entertainment. Their patience and knowledge created a wonderful camaraderie with lots of surprises and laughter along the way. This trip was a 10!
