Such an inspiring, amazing trip with so many wonderful aspects and perspectives it is difficult to know where to begin. No doubt that eight days on the Colorado River, through the expanse of time of the Grand Canyon is incredible. The majesty, wonder, and beauty are beyond mere words. But the best part of the experience by far were the people - with our family and to connect with new friends on a shared journey. Stories, laughter, helping one another, learning together, and sometimes just speechless. And then there was the crew - Trevin, Sean, and the whole Mathis clan. Their love of the place, the passion for what they do, and the hospitality and grace they showered on each of us. GECX is by far the best at what they do! Each day was an adventure. River and camp life were great - thrilling Rapids, side canyons, waterfalls, geology, history, a little fishing, and even relaxation. The food was simply awesome. And the fellowship so special. It was the best vacation we've had - and we've had some great ones. We were all somewhat sad when it was over - but know we will do it again (and again). For eight days we were immersed in a thing so, so special. As infamous boatman Buzz Holmstrom would say, it is "the doing of the thing." We cannot wait to do it again - with GECX.
