I loved the overall experience and it was truly beautiful, exciting and something unique to experience. It was more strenuous than I anticipated going up the canyon based on the description. Our guide was not very encouraging for my friend and I, we are both over 60 but relatively fit, however we were slower than the others. He kept trying to talk us out of going forward. I’m glad we didn’t listen. At the end he congratulated us for making it thru the whole thing. More encouragement from him would have made it more enjoyable, however all the guests were very encouraging and helpful, even waiting for us at the end as I was very slow due to blisters on both feet from the boots they made me wear.
Overall a great experience, just know it’s a 1 1/2 hour hike uphill on rocky terrain.
