Wonderful trip... Lots of laughs with new friends from all over the USA and an unexpected oneness with the river. Never in my life have I been so dirty and hot; our last days were 105F on the river. But so worth it. Favorite part was sleeping under the canopy of stars... and then being wakened by the moon coming over the canyon walls. River rafting staff was exceptional !
