Slip out of your sleeping bag, shake off last night’s celebrations, and get ready for another action-packed day. After breakfast, we each decide how we want to spend our morning. Those wanting to explore the Lower Salt River have the option (for an additional cost) to depart for a scenic float trip on this Class I river known for its lush riparian scenery and wildlife. Experienced guides steer our inflatable rafts downstream searching for bald eagles, great blue heron, beaver, and even herds of wild mustangs! A trip down the river also provides opportunities for swimming, a cooling treat in the midst of our desert escapade. Those who prefer to stay back at camp can enjoy an independent morning hike among the saguaro, follow our guide on another epic mountain bike ride, or just relax in a hammock and relish the Arizona sunshine. In mid-afternoon, we rendezvous back at camp and gather as a group for a Dutch oven cooking class, followed by a celebratory dinner and campfire. In the distance, as the desert nightlife begins to stir, we may hear the song of the coyote, a permanent resident of this beautiful park. All meals included.
Activity options: Mountain Biking: Up to 21 miles, elevation gain: 975’; Hiking: Go as far as you'd like!; Salt River scenic float (additional cost): Half-day
Pinch-me moment: Maybe your chosen adventure. Or maybe, simply, the magic of the desert night. Crickets, campfire, coyotes laughing in a distant valley, and more stars than you can count.
