Dreaming of White River Rafting down the Arizona Salt River

Have you ever been White River Rafting?

In June my husband and I will be celebrating 25 years of marriage!

25 years… How amazing is that?

I’d love nothing more than to whisk him away on a little white river rafting adventure… Just the two of us for a few days 🙂

Cris and I have always loved the outdoors and our girls have been raised with that same adventurous spirit.

Before we were married we enjoyed a thrilling river rafting adventure down the Kern River in California.  I worked for a small boutique editorial company and my boss took everyone in the company on a fun filled rafting trip.  It was a blast!

Believe it or not we haven’t been since.

With three active young ladies our days and weeks go by at dizzying speed.  Cris and I rarely get away just the two of us.  In fact I think the last time we took an “extended” vacation (we were gone for four days!) was to celebrate our 10th anniversary.


We are due for a little adventure don’t you think?

I’ve been doing a little planning and thought a white river rafting trip down the Salt River in Arizona might just be the prefect way to celebrate our anniversary.


My younger brother just moved to Arizona a few months ago and has been sharing the most exquisite photos!  I’ve been dreaming of getting away for a few days and exploring this beautiful area. It’s a little bit of paradise for fitness enthusiasts like us 😉

With all the precipitation we’ve had this winter I imagine it is going to be an amazing white rafting season!

And there really is nothing like a good old road trip…  ah… I can see it already…

Music blasting with the wind in our hair…

Gorgeous scenery all around…

Sunshine kissing our skin as we speed down one wild rapid after another…
