History

Writing from early explorers of the Grand Canyon

A river historian will join us on this special trip to share many memorable stories and pinpoint the dramatic events experienced by the early river runners. Our historian will keep you entranced as you learn of the challenges that Major Powell, George Flavell, Julius Stone, and the Kolb brothers encountered on their expeditions. Of course the trip would not be complete without the intriguing story of the honeymoon couple, Glen and Bessie Hyde, and the mystery that surrounds them. Please join us for an unforgettable expedition sharing the stories of the Canyon's past.
