Canyonlands National Park!

Canyonlands National Park

Canyonlands National Park Information

Canyonlands National Park covers a vast area of rock wilderness in southeast Utah, centered on the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers. Over millions of years, the rivers and their small tributaries have carved the flat sandstone rock layers into many amazing forms with a wide range of colors. The 530 square miles of the park contain countless canyons, arches, spires, buttes, mesas and a myriad of other spectacular rock formations.

All 5 Stars for Trip Advisor Reviews this year!

TripAdvisor

“SGE is a great example of “you get what you pay for”; yes, they are a little pricier than some others, but their trips are well planned, their staff is professional and helpful, the experience can’t be truly described. You will not be disappointed.”

End of the Government Shutdown...kind of.

by Sheri Griffith River Expeditions 14. October 2013 11:27

Government Shutdown and
Sheri Griffith River Expeditions:

We have had a lot of people asking about our trips and if we can still run them.   Sheri Griffith River Expeditions has only slightly been affected by the Government Shutdown as of right now.


There are still plenty of great things to do in Moab, other than Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Check out www.discovermoab.com or www.visitutah.com for a list of alternate activities to do in the area.


book onlineWe would like to thank Utah’s Governor Herbert and Secretary of the Interior Jewell, for their work opening up the National Parks in Utah. You can read Co-Owner Arlo’s comments about the shutdown in the Salt Lake Tribune here.


We doubt the shutdown will last to next year. SO…..We are still booking lots of trips for 2014!  

October Activities at Sheri Griffith Expeditions

by Kristl 9. October 2013 06:44

Rich Practicing his Drive

Short days, colder nights and even some snow on the mountains...must be October in Moab.  We've been busy cleaning, repairing and putting away the rafting equipment here at Sheri Griffith Expeditions, but we have found some time to get out and play, too.  We still have beautiful weather for spending time on the water, in the canyons and on the golf course. 

Brenda took some time to explore Cataract Canyon, launching on the evening of September 30th so that she could beat the "shutdown".  She explored some side canyons and was excited to show us the pictures of the arrowhead she found (and left) there.

Kristl took her family and friends for a "Ducky Day" on the Daily Stretch of the Colorado River and had lots of fun playing in the sand and building sand castles with her kids.

Arlo took some time to kayak on the Colorado River for a day away from the computer and brochure planning.

Jose has taken some great hikes to area petroglyphs, and is planning some more fun excursions with his family.

Marshall and Nicole took their family on a Labyrinth Canyon excursion.

Rich took his family down Cataract Canyon.

Aaron hiked into Cataract Canyon and then rafted down from the Confluence.

Izzy is planning a Cataract Canyon or Labyrinth Canyon trip for next week.

Max and Tabitha have spent time in Pennsylvania with Tabitha's family, and are planning a trip to Costa Rica in November.

Stephanie is traveling abroad, visiting Italy, Sri Lanka and other destinations.

Christian and Rich

One activity that Brenda, Rich, Sara Jane and Christian are going to participate in this weekend is the Moab Regional Hospital Charity Golf Tournament.  The proceeds from the tournament benefit the hospital's Digital Mamography Services. Brenda's team may not be the best on the course, but they'll probably have the most fun!

Cataract Canyon...Now with NEW RAPIDS!

Cataract Canyon...Now with NEW RAPIDS!

 

Family Rafting Trips on the Colorado River

September’s record breaking rains and the shrinking of Lake Powell have combined to form some new rapids in Cataract Canyon. For about 10 years, Lake Powell has been at record lows. These low lake levels have allowed the Mighty Colorado River to reclaim some of its former rapids. This has given us the chance to run 5 “new” rapids including the very fun and almost mile long rapid of Water Hole.

Our Operations Manager, Brenda, was able to squeeze in a trip last week before the government shut down. She reported lots of new debris flows from the recent rains.

One of these mudslides created a brand new rapid! Here is Brenda’s description of the new unnamed rapid: “A brand new rockslide has come from the right-side of the canyon to narrow the channel below Water Hole Canyon. At the low water level I ran it at it is was not huge maybe a class 3. The start of the rapid has a classic “V” into some fun splashy waves. If you break through the “V” to the left there is a runnable hole. The hole is little smaller than the Little Delores hole on Westwater Canyon. This should be a really fun rapid at higher flows. YEAH new Rapids!”
