What I really wanted to write about is how, once again, the guides were what made the trip. Of course the river, the rapids, the scenery, the food, etc. was stupendous, but the collection of extraordinary people is what we’ll remember most. They all work incredibly hard but never made any of us feel they are inconvenienced. They not only made lifelong memories for us but really have played a part in the development of our children. Their gift will always be treasured. I’ll let them tell you what award each of them earned at “River Awards Night”!
