It’s GC2015 Grand Canyon-versary!
Three years ago, under sunny skies, I hopped on a fully loaded 18-ft oar boat and pushed off from Lees Ferry– full of anxious anticipation and blissful ignorance.
I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
A few weeks later I reentered civilization, glad to have crossed that item off the bucket list ✓
Not planning to return ever again.
Little did I realize that first trip would be the start of my love affair with the Grand Canyon.
I’m equally terrified and in awe of this place.
Each trip has put me face to face with my perceived limits, shown me that I am bigger than my fears, and challenged me to grow.
Beautiful, difficult, magical, serene, moody– the Grand Canyon is most certainly a woman.
I know she has more to teach me, and I will be back with an open heart and mind ready to take it all in.
