Decades ago, my parents and I drove my middle brother, then 16, to the airport, sending him off to a place I’d never heard of, Bluff, Utah.
Since then, every single Rice Boy has lived there, running rafts down the San Juan, having fun working hard and working hard at having fun.
I haven’t been down the San Juan for years, but now my husband, kids and I are headed to Bluff, putting in at Sand Island, coming out at Mexican Hat. Water may be low, but we’re going with two Rice Boys, so the fun factor will be high!!
