Just finished a 16 day private rafting trip down the Colorado River through the grand canyon. What can I say, the canyon is, well, GRAND! Spectacular scenery, interesting side hikes, and cool activities like forming a floating train of bodies in the Little Colorado River. We took our “big” boats so mine was a 12. 5 foot Sotar and Neil rowed a 14 foot Sotar. These boats were awesome and handled the big water (25,000 cfs) just fine.
