Outstanding tour

As a Tribe member raised as a Grand Canyon Navajo, Brian contributed an incredible amount of personal knowledge that made the land and culture come alive, but it was a such a shame he had no microphone. People in the back had to struggle to hear over the road noise and his voice was nearly gone well before the end of the tour. The opportunity to interact with the Hopi people in their own village and cultural center was priceless. It's a trip I'll treasure the rest of my life.
