Thelma & Louise

Women’s Adventure Retreat
Flagstaff, AZ ~ Castle Valley, UT

September 16 – 22, 2018


 Someone said “Get a Life” so they did!

All of the adventure . . . with a happy ending!

Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime?

Then join us for a thrilling, awe-inspiring, life-enhancing Thelma & Louise road trip of self-discovery through some of the most dramatic, iconic landscapes in the west . . . sunglasses in place, top down on the Mustang, and a horizon that beacons you to step into a world of endless possibilities.

Are you ready?

We’ll connect in Flagstaff, Arizona for an evening reception, jump out of bed the following morning, load our Mustangs, and head into the gorgeous landscape of Thelma & Louise’s American Southwest: Across the Painted Desert, through Monument Valley, overlooking the Goosenecks of the Colorado River, into quaint Moab and through Castle Valley, one of the most beautiful drives in the country, to our home on the Colorado.

Red Cliffs Lodge, secluded along the Colorado River with a backdrop of soaring red rock cliffs and azure blue skies, will be our home for five delightful days of introspection, adventure, joyful experiences and sisterhood.

You will be ensconced in two-bedroom cabins nestled along the Colorado, each with a private deck and stunning views of the river and her canyons. Our days will include the perfect mix of wandering around our beautiful new home, gathering in circle and extraordinary excursions into the scenic beauty of the area.


EXCURSIONS (you’ll want your camera!):
• Arches National Park ~ a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world.

• Canyonlands National Park, a landscape of countless canyons and fantastically formed buttes carved by the Colorado River and its tributaries. While we are in Canyonlands, we will also visit the overlook where the final scene of Thelma and Louise was filmed.

• Horseback ride and luncheon along spectacular trails made famous by John Wayne, each turn filled with awe-inspiring views of Caste Valley and the Colorado River.

• Rafting through the beautiful Castle Valley canyons of the Colorado River with a scenic stop for lunch. No need to worry about frightening rapids, however; our trip will be a float trip with plenty of time to soak in the scenery and snap hundreds of photos (and enough light rapids to cool us down).

• Wine tasting at Castle Winery.

You were hoping to get a life . . . and you did!
