Just about anything about the river portion, including rafting, camping, preparing for a raft trip, private trips, interpretation (geology, human history, etc), publications, Glen Canyon dam. I`m also willing to answer general questions about the South and North Rims, but primarily can be a resource to refer people to the right source.
Grand Canyon raft guide since 1978. Author of "Dancing on the Edge", set in the Grand Canyon. Recovering MBA. Former radio and television host. Speaker, author, photographer, consultant/trainer.

The Glen Canyon dam was built to save Lake Mead from filling up with silt. It is the only major US dam built into sandstone, which acts like a sponge. It could eventually fail from the pressure of the water, or sand waves slamming up against it. Some people, even PhD geologists, who interpret the bible strictly, place the geology of the Canyon in a 6000 - 9000 year time frame.

Hi Nan Sorry for the delay. I've just come off a fifteen day Canyon raft trip. You have only one option from Vegas for any whitewater trips in the Canyon, and that would be with the Hualapai tribe's
