Seeing the Grand Canyon from the rim is an incredible experience but what about looking up from the Colorado River? Tonight Mappy Hour and Travel Massive are teaming up to share from 4 explorers - Paulina Dao, Tyler Fox, Helena Wong and Sarah Knapp - who spent much of December and some of January rafting down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.
Their trip took a total of 29 days and included 16 people, 5 inflatable rafts, and dozens of rapids.
Tune in to hear them chat about:
• why this should be on your bucket list
• logistics of a 20+ day trip from food to layers to leave no trace practices
• skill level and rowing acumen (how good do you really need to be?)
• talk about the permit process which is open until February 22
