Fellow alumni, family, and friends will embark on an adventure of a lifetime: a river raft trip through the Grand Canyon on May 23-30, 2015.
Greetings fellow river runners and future river runners!? I will be the 2015 Grand Canyon Adventure Guide for alumni, families, and friends. I’ll teach you how to read rock and new ways to listen, observe, be aware, and relax. Don’t forget that it’s never too early to start hydrating!

I joined the group last year and had such a wonderful experience that I’m returning again this year, along with six family members.? I wondered ahead of the trip how it would play out, me being 80 years old and not knowing anyone else.? Well, it was an absolutely fantastic experience.?We had seven decades of Mines graduates, including me, the oldest from the class of 1956, and Nick Martin, a 2014 graduate.? The camaraderie was outstanding. That coupled with the ability to view and learn about the three billion years (and more) of geology exposed in the Canyon made the trip both enjoyable and educational.
