Licensed Commercial Outfitter Sheri Griffith River Expeditions will conduct the trip from Moab to Lake Powell on the Colorado River through Canyonlands National Park. We cover all expenses once you get to Moab.

You will need to be in Moab the afternoon of September 19 at the motel to get briefed, issued gear, fed, and put up for the night. This is a 4 night 5-day trip.

Attached is information on the trip, and a Risk Form and a Confidential Information Spreadsheet that are to be completed and sent back to me, before the end of July. The Confidential Information Spreadsheet is to ensure we are accommodating any and all special dietary and other needs.

Know that we can accommodate most any disability: wheel chairs, MST, certified service dogs (NPS does not allow comfort dogs), multiple amputees, severe PTS, TBI, and blindness. The more disabled, the more we'd like to have you on board.
