Ep. 30 | Our First Multi-Day Paddling Expedition - Marble Canyon, Arizona

This episode was recorded in the town of Blanding, Utah - a place we didn’t expect to stay longer than a playground pit stop. However it turned into a full blown week with the local pool opening and easy access to wifi, BLM camping and plenty of fun for all of us.

This episode is all about our maiden multi-day kayak expedition down Marble Canyon, the last section of the Colorado River before the infamous Grand Canyon leg of the journey. For us - it was the perfect trip to literally get our feet wet. It was short, super scenic and unique because the only way in is with a backhaul - meaning you get shuttled to the top of the river deep in the canyon and float back at your leisure. There is also a secret path in - so listen to the show if you’d like the details. We share our process of preparing for multi-day journeys, the experience and what it takes to pull it off.
