San Juan River Raft Trip
Join us for a wonderful river rafting adventure in the summer of 2011. The beautiful San Juan River starts in the mountains of Colorado, and flows through northwestern New Mexico and southern Utah on its way to Lake Powell. We'll float 27 of those miles between Bluff and Mexican Hat, Utah. Join us to learn about the natural history of this river system and the plants and animals of the area through games, stories and other fun activities. The river takes us into a geologic past of smooth colorful sandstone and awesome limestone with fossils, miner trails and Mormon trails, swift water and wedding cake walls. There will be lots of time for playing in and on the water. We'll have paddle and oar rafts and plenty of fun for the whole family. This trip includes three days of rafting. Meals from first night's dinner through last day's lunch, expert staff and river guides, group equipment and return transportation to Bluff are included. This trip is designed for children 7 years and over with parent(s) or grandparent(s)no experience necessary. Meet in Bluff, Utah on the evening of Friday, June 24; launch on June 25th; return to Bluff the afternoon of Monday, June 27th. Complete itinerary available. Camping equipment may be rented.
