Seeing the Grand Canyon from the rim is an incredible experience but what about looking up from the Colorado River? Tonight we're teaming up with Travel Massive to hear 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

(and feel free to drop your questions in the live chat section ⬆️)

This is the first of a monthly series called GO+TELL (like show and tell, but go and tell... get it?) where we turn the mic over to adventurers in our community to share their planning, itinerary and tips and tricks. If you have an awesome trip you'd be willing to share with the group - please email mappyhour@outdoorfest.com
