• The Confluence Of Adventure // OARS

    5,730 views 4 months ago
    Deep in the redrock canyons of Utah lie some of the best rafting and adventure trips in the country.

    Utah is one of those special places that can remind you in an instant—as you splash through a rapid for the first time, squeeze through a crack in the earth or stand beneath a rocky arch at sunset—that life is about how you choose to spend it.

    In the words of the late Edward Abbey: "It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it’s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space."

    Whether you're looking for a memorable family adventure, the rush of whitewater, or the solace of nature, you'll find it all in Utah…
