SALT LAKE CITY - April 7, 2020 - PRLog -- Sitting on the shoreline of life pretty much sums up where the world is at.

"As a pandemic runs its global course, immobilized though we may feel, we don't have to respond like a deer in the headlights," said Brandon Lake, CMO of Western River Expeditions (https://www.westernriver.com/) headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah. "Now is a great time to dream about future adventures and plan for the time when life returns to the new normal."

This active travel company specializes in rafting the rivers of the Colorado River Basin. But for the first time in Lake's memory, the rafts are empty, sitting on the shoreline. On April 1, Grand Canyon National Park closed, including river operations through May 21, 2020. Resumption of river trips will be evaluated later in May pending current CDC guidance.

To accommodate clients whose trips have been delayed by the pandemic, Lake and his team have been able to re-allocate their allotted permit spaces on some trips in the Grand Canyon for departures later in the 2020 season. They are assisting people in solidifying changes in plans and looking to open slots for them later this summer and in 2021.

Lake said he is "confident we will be able to find an available date for clients disrupted by early season cancellations who are still interested in doing a Grand Canyon rafting trip (https://www.westernriver.com/grand-canyon-rafting)."

The company has posted its latest Covid-19 news and trip status on its website to keep the public up-to-date. See: https://www.westernriver.com/covid-19.

Between now and when guests are able to re-embark on rafting adventures, Western River Expeditions encourages people to experience the Grand Canyon and other breathtaking locations via virtual tours. "We put these together before this all happened, but never thought we would be using them for accessing these special places in a time we would not be able to in person."
