Driving about 3 hours to St. George after river float, with at least one stop along the way. Minimal walking, no hiking today. We will place our luggage on the curb beside the motorcoach 15 minutes prior to departure for transit to Saint George.
At the resort, the breakfast buffet offers choices such as eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast, hash browns, fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, assorted pastries, milk, juice, coffee, tea, and water.
After check-out, we’ll travel by motorcoach a few miles to the banks of the Colorado River, where we begin our flat water float trip, led and operated by local experts. Our field trip begins with an exciting ride down the two-mile long Glen Canyon Dam access tunnel. With the dam soaring 700 feet above, we’ll board a motorized pontoon raft for our journey downstream, where we will experience one of the most dramatic stretches of river found in the western United States. While underway, we’ll hear about the area’s story of soaring sandstone cliffs, crystal blue-green waters, abundant wildlife, former inhabitation by native cultures, exploration by Major John Wesley Powell, and the Colorado River’s modern role in the Southwest’s water and power delivery system.
On the river, we’ll have box lunches.
Returning to St. George via motorcoach, we’ll check into our rooms with time to freshen up and relax until dinner.
At a local restaurant, we will enjoy extensive buffet offerings, with coffee, tea, water included. Other beverages available for purchase. We’ll share our favorite experiences with new Road Scholar friends during our farewell dinner.
At leisure. Prepare for check-out and departure in the morning.
