Ruby / Horsethief & Westwater Heroic Families River Trip
July 25, 2022 - July 30, 2022
Come spend 3 days and 2 nights on the Colorado River traveling down scenic Ruby Horsethief Canyon in SW Colorado. From the seat of your canoe, you will be quickly immersed in the start of canyon country with the glow of red rocks, bald eagles, and beautiful sunsets on the mighty Colorado. After 3 days of a mellow scenic float, your river adventure will be elevated as we take a guided tour through ‘The West’s Best Short Whitewater Trip’ that is Westwater Canyon. On this 17 mile stretch, the river quickly narrows and you will be awed by the Precambrian rock, the same rock found in the Grand Canyon, be challenged with class III-IV whitewater and finish as the river widens to take in the last views of this scenic stretch of river.
Invited on this adventure are wounded warriors and one friend or special guest. After spending 4 days this trip will include all travel from Denver or Grand Junction, river and camping gear, instruction, meals, 24 hr. staffing and a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Travel will be in canoes, inflatable kayaks, and a support raft.
