Trip of a Lifetime!
By Molly • June 30, 2022
Mild to Wild delivered the trip of a lifetime to myself and my two best friends from college down Cataract Canyon. Their emphasis on customer service was second to none. Our first trip with them was a one-day visit to Castle Valley six months ago. After peppering our wonderful guide Annie with questions about what our perfect weeklong journey might look like (“Deso? Gates of Lodore? Yampa? Cataract?…”), we took the plunge into the six-day journey for June 2022 down the Colorado from Moab to Hite on Lake Powell.
Each day seemed to out-top the previous one. I’ll begin by highlighting the first-rate, hardworking staff of Mike, Scotty, Abelino and Bryn – they couldn’t have been more cool, and served as role models for the several teenagers in our group (and perhaps the 40/50-somethings as well!) Other highlights: Our fellow rafters were super friendly and fun, the delicious gourmet food (seared salmon with avocado toast in the middle of nowhere? Are you kidding??), diving into The Confluence, hiking to The Dollhouse, geeking out on the most scenic rock formations America has to offer, beers by the campfire, sleeping on sandbars under millions of stars every night… oh, and the rapids! Thanks to all – it was truly the trip of a lifetime for my friends and I, which I will never forget and will be forever grateful.
