Sept. 16-19 | Illustrated Journaling on the Lower San Juan River

Experiencing wilderness has immeasurable benefits for many people. Sketching what you encounter in the wilderness deepens that experience.  By providing time to closely observe and respond to the details of the landscape, you become more immersed in your journey. Your illustrated journal becomes a meaningful meditation and an irreplaceable memory of time spent in the wild. That’s why Great Old Broads for Wilderness and our friends at Holiday River Expeditions have decided to combine the two experiences with a four-day river trip down the lower San Juan River.
