Yours can be too!  5 days/4 nights. August 29-September 2, 2016. $1450. Professionally outfitted by Sheri Griffith Expeditions (they provide everything), the adventure starts and ends in Moab, Utah.

“Like Odysseus,” Ellen reminds us, “whose only way home was by way of the sea, many of our journeys involve elemental water. We answer the Call to Adventure, lighting out into the unknown where we encounter not only the magnificence of this watery world, but our very souls. The journey is the human journey, each one a reckoning with self as we step into these elemental waters. And when we return, we carry that most precious cargo: the story.”
