    Rafting the Colorado River

    The rafts the natives use on the last 40 miles of the Grand Canyon are a 16 foot Zodiac style raft with a gas motor. We will be on the river for about 6 hours.


    We all got very wet!!! Some of the rapids are quite extreme.

    Exploring the Waterfall


    Helicopter Ride Out of the Grand Canyon


    Grand Canyon Skywalk


    The Skywalk is quite the experience.

    That evening we got a ride back to the hotel in one of the buses. Tomorrow we drive back to Casa Grande.
