Grand Canyon Backpacking

Join us for an unforgettable Thanksgiving as we experience the grandeur of the Grand Canyon by traveling into the canyon and following the Colorado River to its confluence with the Little Colorado River.  We will spend six days in the canyon, thus the nature of this trip is very strenuous.
