Yeah, this is the place. If you can make the trip, find a way to get it done! There is nothing like being inside the canyon to appreciate how really, really big the canyon is. And the views are splendid.

You cannot fully experience and appreciate the Grand Canyon with a 7 day rafting trip thru the inner gorge. Words cannot even begin to tell what we felt and experience down there from the hikes to great spots to the silent quiet parts of the...More
