Relax and float on the cool and refreshing, mountain-stream waters and experience the natural wonders of the ‘mini-Grand Canyon’ of Tonto National Forest,” the release states. “Enjoy the beauty of this recreational paradise and catch a glimpse of the wild horses crossing mid-stream, blue herons gliding across the water and the majestic mountains as you float by. It’s the perfect venue for creating a memorable, enjoyable adventure in the great outdoors.”
