Rafting down the Colorado River

One of the main reasons we came through Page, Arizona was to raft down the Colorado river.  We booked our trip with Raft the Canyon.  We had a great trip, our raft tour guide Rex was awesome.  He was very knowledgeable, laid back and fun!

Rex pointed out to us the way the rock was formed on this one wall looked like a wolf.  See if you can find it in the picture below…


You may be able to see it right away, but if you can’t see it take a look at the below picture.  Don’t feel bad it took me about 8 minutes (maybe a bit longer) to see this on the large towering canyon wall!


We had a stop along the river to look at some old drawings on the canyon wall.  We also went for a quick dip into the water.  It felt like ice water.  We both ran in and out of the water in 10 seconds.

Unfortunately, or fortunately (depending on how you look at it) we had a down pour of rain on our tour.  Now most people may think this is a bad thing, however we have pictures that not every tourist have of the Colorado river.  Waterfalls, pouring over the top of the canyon all the way down the river.  It was amazing!

Waterfalls that only come out on a rainy day.

Unfortunately, we had left our rain jackets in the trunk of the car.  Rex to the rescue, he had some garbage bags that we used to cover ourselves.  At first we said no, being Canadian and all we like to think we can handle any weather.  But after about 10 minutes we caved and asked for some bags.  It made a difference.  Lesson: always bring your rain coat.
