Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? If you haven’t already been to the Grand Canyon, you are in for one of the most awe inspiring places Mother Nature has ever created. And if you have, you already know the beauty that awaits. 

We will arrive on Wednesday evening to watch the sunset over the canyon, then enjoy a lovely welcome dinner and introduction to our amazing guests and weekend together. 

For some Grand Adventurers. Friday is the day that Ted and a few other select crazies will be attempting a Rim2Rim2Rim challenge. This is a 46 mile out and back hike from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to the North Rim and back again. It will include about 11,000 feet of climbing. 

This is also the day that retreat participants are on their own to explore, rent a mule, go for a helicopter ride, or just relax and take in all the beauty that is our beloved Grand Canyon.
