Colorado River & Trail Expeditions is offering a gluten-free rafting trip through Desolation Canyon along the Green River.
Attention athletes, adventure-seekers and active families! Colorado River & Trail Expeditions (CRATE), known for their amazing rafting trips through Desolation Canyon along the Green River in Utah, is hosting a special gluten-free trip from June 25-29, 2013.
The CRATE team was introduced to the gluten-free diet by National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) volunteer Cheryl Lynne Simpson. Having learned how to accommodate the Simpson family’s gluten-free needs, CRATE is excited to host the 5-day rafting trip, fully loaded with gluten-free food options.
The rafting trip, which starts and ends at Desolation Canyon, has rapids that will be perfect for the experienced and novice rafter alike. CRATE offers an 18’ rowing rig designed for an easy drift along the Green River. Those seeking some more action can take on the river in either a single person kayak or a 6 person raft through the over 60 class I, II and III rapids. The trip offers more than just rafting as well; there are stops along the way that include prehistoric ruins, whiskey stills from the Prohibition Era and beautiful beaches with amazing wildlife, white sand and endless groves of trees lining the riverbanks – all with gluten-free food at every meal!
NFCA is excited to hear about this special gluten-free rafting trip and hopes to see more trips like this in the future. Learn more about the rafting trip by visiting the CRATE website. Be sure to check out the amazing photos of the river and surrounding scenery!
