A Father, A Son, and the Colorado River

As we all do grow­ing up, we are raised, nur­tured, and taught by our par­ents until we even­tu­al­ly grow into our own adult selves. For­est Wood­ward was well on his own path in his late 20s when he stum­bled across a poem writ­ten to him by his father the year he was born.  This sparked them to come togeth­er and relive a raft trip through the Grand Canyon that his dad had been on 43 years ear­li­er. The Impor­tant Places fol­lows For­est and his father as they share a jour­ney through one the most impor­tant places in his father’s upbring­ing, while gain­ing a deep­er under­stand­ing of each other.
