Santa Clara Pueblo artist Roxanne Swentzell returns to the river with Page! Everyone had so much fun with Roxanne last year, that Page is bringing Rox back to the river again. During this RIVER OF DISCOVERY trip, we’ll float down the beautiful Green River through Utah’s Majestic Canyons (also known as Desolation Canyon, or Deso), exploring writing and sculpting as complementary forms of creative expression. Roxanne will guide us in sculpting, using river clay and materials gathered from the land, Page will guide us in sculpting with words. The professional women guides of Sheri Griffith Expeditions will ensure that our journey is safe, delicious, and well-equipped! This will be the perfect time and place to rediscover the story of your life! The trip starts and ends in Moab, Utah. All food, beverages, rafting and camping equipment provided.
