Saturday, August 17, 2019 | 9:00AM — Wednesday, August 21, 2019 | 5:00PM
History Colorado teams up again with Centennial Canoe Outfitters for this exciting trip through a wild, remote area. Along the journey, historian Dr. Andy Guillford of Fort Lewis College facilitates the trip and brings the Wild West to life with fascinating tales. As you retrace Major John Wesley Powell’s epic 1869 path into the annals of history, this twisting river winds its way between sheer colorful sandstone walls, thousands of feet high. You’ll marvel at Labyrinth, Horse Shoe and Trin-Alcove Canyons. No shortage of campfire stories on this trip! There’ll be time for day hikes as you float along the Green River wilderness.
