Do you ever feel that your life is in danger of being overtaken by all of the paper you have to deal with every day? Even in the age of electronic, digital and social media, paper is everywhere in our lives and usually causing stress. What if you could take a vacation and forget all about the emails, the school supply lists, the homework, the bills, the magazines that make you feel so much less than perfect and the newspaper headlines that make you want to crawl back under the covers?
This vacation is certified “paper-free” – well, except for the one paper that’s provide for you – toilet paper. Whitewater rafting through the Grand Canyon will take you as far away from the weight of your papers as you can imagine; to the very remote floor of the Canyon and the Colorado River. Whether it’s just a 3-day escape or a full 13-day Grand Canyon adventure, your days will be a perfect blend of exploration, excitement, relaxation and just taking in the stunning beauty of your surroundings. A whitewater rafting trip provides a welcome break from the stresses of everyday life for guests of all ages, and the opportunity to get past the papers and truly reconnect with family and the natural world. One river outfitter that provides “grand” family rafting trips is Arizona River Runners, helping you get back to basics.
Another benefit of a Grand Canyon family vacation is rediscovering some of the things that tend to get lost when we are stuck under a pile of papers or wrapped up in the lightning pace of technology. The forgotten art of storytelling is enjoyed on the river, as well as sharing the joy of music, games and laughter around the camp. You can relax and truly enjoy your food with family and friends, while your river guides do all of the work for you. Once the focus shifts from the daily to-do lists, tasks and worries that those papers in our lives represent, you’ll be amazed at the little things that you begin to notice – from the rich aroma of coffee brewing in the morning, to the glow of sunset on the Canyon walls. In the Grand Canyon, there are countless discoveries to be made and sights to take in as you travel the river and learn from your guides.
You can forget about bills, magazines, junk mail, and the infamous “to do list” because chances are that a Grand Canyon rafting adventure will make you feel like a kid again. You can clamber over rocks and splash under waterfalls on beautiful side Canyon hikes, and experience the exhilaration of conquering the rapids as you feel the spray on your face. Each day you can enjoy miles of flat water on the river, eat hearty meals and decadent desserts in camp, and fall asleep under a blanket of stars each night, counting them just like a kid! Wear the same clothes a few times – everyone does, and we encourage it!
Make your escape from the paper trail today, and follow a path less traveled on a Colorado River trip with Arizona River Runners.
