Rollin' on the River

On a whim, we decided on a Denton family first. After living in the Valley of the Sun for 24 years, we tubed the Salt River.

We packed enough snacks for a 12-hour drive to Utah, rented tubes, and hopped on the bus which takes tubers upriver. It was more fun than I thought. Hyrum ran alongside our caravan, snagging treasures from the branches on the banks or off the bottom of the riverbed, while the rest of us just relaxed, snacked, and talked. We all loved seeing the wild horses cooling off in the water, watching their babies and grazing on the river’s provender. Most eventful moment of the whole trip was our exit, which included a screaming, fearful Eve getting dunked by her dad to get her untangled from the rope in her tube and also included a shocked Mom getting upended unexpectedly and being helped to the bank by a surefooted Hyrum because my shoes kept getting swept off by the current.

Not too bad for a first experience. Will we go back? To be determined at a later date.
