Where: The San Juan River in southeast Utah. The San Juan cuts through beautiful canyon country and offers mild white water that is suitable for veterans with significant injury. Sandy beaches and camps, ancient rock art, and beautiful natural scenery will be unforgettable highlights of the trip.
Why: A multi-day river trip is an ideal setting for military veterans to reintegrate, acquire new knowledge and skills together, create bonds, and have fun together, and relax. Away from everyday routines and daily life distractions one can find new appreciations for life and rediscover their strength and solidity as we travel down the beautiful San Juan River.
