This summer, Explorations is offering a unique and exciting adventure through Montana and Utah. Our journey will begin with a visit to Lewis and Clark Caverns for a 2 hour tour of the world underground, during which we will experience the natural wonders of these caves and marvel at the colors they present. Having had our fill, we will drive south for our once in a life time canoeing experience on the magical and calm waters of the Green River. These waters meandering through the Stillwater and Labyrinth Canyon make up some of Utah's most beautiful scenery. We will paddle a 50 plus mile stretch of flat water that will follow the rolling desert hills of eastern Utah into the majestic depths of Labyrinth Canyon. We will travel through the ancient history of the landscape as we view the ruins and rock art sites of the Pueblo Indians. The Red cliffs, desert sunsets, and warm days await us on this memorable experience.
The journey will not end there, however. Once we have traveled through the cracks of the earth we will explore Moab and the beauty and excitement it has to offer. We will visit and hike to some of the great arches in the area and look over the Green River at Dead Horse Point. Our journey will only be limited by our imagination.
