I had the absolute pleasure of paddling the Grand Canyon for most of April 2022. This trip was extremely special
in so many ways; two specific highlights:
Got engaged to the love of my life, the beautiful Kansas Peacock
Got to experience the canyon with not only my parents, but also my little brother
It is hard to put into words what a Grand Canyon trip is like. The duration of the trip creates an environment
that is difficult to describe. Normal river trips last between 5-7 days and feel like brief escapes from reality.
20 days on the Grand feels like reality. After 7-10 days of repetition - wake up, break down camp, boat,
make camp, sleep - you get into the groove and can just bask in the glory of life on the river. This is not
to imply that this life is not without its highs and lows; the beauty of this journey is the emotional spectrum
that you experience throughout.
20 days of memories is impossible to even begin to convey - here are some pictures from the trip that make me happy.
