I LOVE re-reading some of my journal posts from various river trips.
“It is GLORIOUS waking up with the sun. It’s slow and easy. not hurried or abrupt or rushed.’
“Woke up to pee and looked up at the stars – GLORIOUS!”
“We saw a Condor! It was way up the thermal drafts.”
“Little things, like corn chips and salsa, which I love, feel familiar and make me happy!”
“Floating the river is deeply quiet and so incredibly peaceful.”
“I don’t quite know how to describe laying on a cot at 9:30 pm, perched on a cliff in a bend of the Canyon and seeing the moonlight bathe the opposite wall with a golden light. The big dipper is perfectly positioned above the wall…and me.”
“It’s a problem, but it’s not my problem.” ~ Quay Hunter 😆
And another interesting note: we met our group the night before we launched on our 16 day, 225 mile Grand Canyon trip. One of the women looked at me and said, “Oh. You’re part of our group? You don’t look like rafting people.”
Here’s the truth: show up for a rafting trip and you’re “rafting people.” It’s as simple and true as that!
