Yoga & backpacking retreat at Canyonlands in Utah
Oct 12, 2014| $1003
Emily Kasman and Hilary Paris are presenting an adventure of a lifetime with KAF Adventures. Gain a calm sense of self and a communion with nature by traveling through the heart of the Canyonlands. Southern Utah is a place where nature lays bare the long chronicle of time. The geological wonders abound in Canyon Lands. Here you’ll have the opportunity to explore a majestic wilderness that is rarely visited by tourists: the White Canyon Complex.
The White Canyon Complex is a series of deep running gorges, narrow slot canyons and expansive tabletop country just north of Lake Powell. Jacob’s Chair, a large mesa that is identifiable for miles, anchors the White Canyon Complex.
Connect with the open landscape, challenge your fitness and normal daily patterns, reflect, relax, and find new space in your heart. Take a different type of vacation and return home with a greater appreciation for the beauty of the desert and the beauty of the Self.
