Grand Canyon 1975 Explorers Post 20

Here is a great film of the Explorer Post 20 from Los Alamos, New Mexico, doing a self guided trip through Grand Canyon in 1975! My thanks to Stretch Fretwell for all the river advocacy he has done over the decades!

Great video!

I think the decked canoe on the trip was an 'Easy Rider'. Excellent boat, I got sold mine when we moved to Az. Regretted it after my first San Jaun trip!

I also loved the double oars and the decked canoe. Technology has certainly changed on the rafts since then. Great video. I launch for the first time on the Grand next Thursday, so this video was great for inspiration.

The videography and naration remind me of some of the old Warren Miller movies.

That's it exactly. I was trying to remember what it was.

Video

I think I saw that video 30 years ago. I used to work with a couple of those guys in the Colorado Outward Bound river program.
