Black Canyon River Adventure
May 2-5, 2013

This exciting canoe trip will take us along a spectacular 11-mile stretch of the Colorado River, just south of the Hoover Dam. Known as Black Canyon, this section of the river forms the boundary between Nevada to the west and Arizona on the east. It is surrounded by the high rocky cliffs of the El Dorado Mountains and is replete with naturally-occurring hot springs. Although located in the midst of the Mojave Desert, it has an unexpected abundance of wildlife, including fish, birds, and plants.

The lower Colorado River is moving flat-water, not whitewater, and it is perfect for beginners or seasoned paddlers alike. Hot springs, caves and waterfalls are just a few of the highlights that you experience on this excursion. You'll hike and scramble over large boulders, making your way through narrow slot canyons to hidden geothermal pools. Spend hours relaxing and soaking in the natural hot tubs. Paddle into rain caves, and take time to study ancient rock art left by the Mohave tribes who inhabited the area. You may see Desert Big Horn sheep, bald eagles, coyotes, red-tail hawks, and turkey vultures. This adventure will leave you with vivid memories and a smile to last a lifetime.

So if you are ready to rough it, join us for an awesome river camping adventure to Black Canyon. Just kick back and enjoy the ride in a first class luxury bus. On top of that, we are going to be serving up some good old-fashioned home cooking. Space is limited so reserve your spot now.
