Grand Canyon Rafting Trip
July 6 to July 12, 2015
summer (2015), Fred Beck (Geological Society of Maine) and Alison Jones (GSM
and Geological Society of Arizona) will be leading a raft trip through 188
miles of the Grand Canyon - - a 7 day trip on 2 motorized 34-foot inflatable
rafts. This will be the 7th
trip for Alison and 6th for Fred.
We will be going “down section” from the late Permian into the
Precambrian, and making numerous geologic and just fun stops along the
way. We will be camping out each night
on sandy beach deltas. As in the past,
our trip will be run by Hatch River Expeditions, the oldest raft concessionaire
in the Grand Canyon.
provides everything; two rafts which
each comfortably carry 16 people, all camping gear and food, and three licensed
experienced guides who run the boats, do the cooking, and assure that everyone
will have the experience of a lifetime.
In the past we have had about 50% geologists and the rest spouses,
teen-aged children, or just people who want to learn about geology in perhaps
the grandest classroom in the world. It
may be that this trip would qualify for continuing education credits for those
who need these credits.
trip has proved very popular and the available spots usually are all filled by
late summer or early Fall. A deposit of
$500 is required to hold a spot. The
balance of $2450 is due in March. In
case of cancellation, the deposit will be returned if the spot can be
filled. Since we always have had a
waiting list, we’ve never failed to fill vacated spots. For more detailed information, contact Fred
Beck at email@example.com, or Alison
Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org.
