Points of Interest

Your eyes are filled with the canyon around you, pictures never having done it justice, as your mule meanders his way down the trail to the bottom where a boat waits at the edge of the Colorado River. You snake around and into Redwall Cavern and you disembark to touch the walls and walk along the bank. Back in the boat, white water rushes around you and you begin to understand the power of the river. As dusk descends you make camp and listen to the world echo through high, red walls drowning out the noise of the life you left behind.
