First and foremost in the group were the guides... Chelly, Matt, Tom, Justin, KJ, and Allison. They were the best! Probably every rafting group thinks their guides were the best, but this group was great!
There were six of us passengers that were "full trippers" - Tom and Nancy, Sue and Fred, Patrick, and myself.
From Louisiana were Sue and Fred, riding with Matt.
And, of course, there was me!
On the seventh day of the journey, the eleven members of the Upper Canyon group were exchanged for a new group of eleven who would travel with us in the Lower Canyon. It seemed like we had just "gotten used to" the first group and then a new bunch came along that we had to adjust to. It's not that either group was better than the other, they were just different. After a day or two of adjusting to the new group, all was good. They turned out to be pretty nice people too!
The Upper Canyon group consisted of Elana and her mother Priscilla; friends Ashley, Dawn and Susan; and in the paddle raft were Dave and Jacque, with friends Jeff and Sue; and Peter and Deanna.
Elana... I don't have a photo of her mother Priscilla.
Dave and Jacque (friends of Jeff and Sue).
Peter and Jeff.
The Lower Canyon group... I don't have a photo of DJ...
From Ohio were Dar and Jim.
From Arizona were Jason and Sarah.
