We were extremely pleased with this activity. The weather, our guide, Lauren, the conditions were all PERFECT and we absolutely LOVED every minute. Beyond peaceful and our guide pointed out lots of history and key points on the rive. We saw two feral burrows on the way and kept our sights on a longhorn sheep...NO sheep, maybe next time!
