I turned 40 this year and I wanted to celebrate the beginning of my journey into middle age, doing something different than what we always do. So instead of going up in the mountains, exploring arches or finding a new hiking spot; we headed to the Colorado river.
I work right next to Moab Jett tours and spent all season hearing stories about awesome adventures on the river.
I wanted tales of my own about fun jet boat times on the river. so, we loaded into their giant van (above) & headed out to get soaked
below is just a quick video sample of the adventure.
we went all the way down to red cliffs lodge. At some points, I'm pretty sure we were flying at approx. 40-60 mph
the folks at Moab Jett tours did NOT disappoint. they even took awesome photos that we had the opportunity to buy for pretty cheap. we did get completely soaked, though lol (see middle right picture) we went early in the AM. this time, so if/when we do it again, I'm definitely going in the afternoon when the water might be a little warmer. still, 10/10 for fun
