We have a new action-packed kayaking video to share with you! The team arrived home late Monday night, and they have been working hard on creating some new videos to share with the community. We hope you enjoy learning about how the team experienced white water on the Grand Canyon in the excerpt below. From Erik: "For a sighted adventurer, the Grand Canyon is a visual masterpiece with huge chaotic rapids surrounded by steep rock walls tiering upward for thousands of feet. However, for a blind person, the view is close up and personal, reduced to what you can touch with your hands and feel beneath your boat. And when you can’t see, there’s no way to truly understand the white-water, . . . without going into it.”
Please share with your fans, friends, and families. Learn more about the expedition at KayakingBlind.org and join the social media buzz by using #KayakingBlind on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
