I am writing this blog post from Fremantle, Western Australia. Working on my new book, “The Merlyn Project”. Sometimes it is hard to focus on writing because outside my window? Blue skies, warm sun, and sandy beaches. You know what it reminds me of? The Rio Grande in February. I am leading four expeditions down the Lower Canyons this winter February 8-15, Feb 18-25, Feb 28-March 6, March 11-18. These trips are fully insured and licensed by the National Park Service. Each trip is 8 days and 7 nights traveling every day and passing through spectacular canyons…warm days, starry nights, gentle rapids, hot springs, unusual birds, desert wilderness, safe, easy camping, archaeology, slot canyon side hikes and more. My trip in 2013 was written up in the May/June 2013 issue of Sierra magazine. I believe I am the only guide running expedition-style canoe trips down the Lower Canyons.
Here’s the good news, there is still room in the canoes for a few more paddlers on the first and third trip. If you want adventure, sun tan, and incredible views, join me on what I believe is the best winter canoe trip in North America. For more details e-mail me firstname.lastname@example.org. Please don’t phone, I am on the other side of the planet and a bit groggy at 3:00 am.
