Rafting the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon

This week’s featured photo comes from Alan English. It was taken while he was rafting through the Grand Canyon on the Colorado River, as the sun was on its way up.

English said he took the trip with Arizona Raft Adventures, a company that offers several options for trips in the Grand Canyon. Trips range from 6 to 16 days long and they offer guided hikes and a yoga adventure too. Waking up every morning to the beauty of the canyon is a high point for many travelers, according to the tour organizer.
