Destination: The U.S. Southwest Parks

Dear Alumni, Parents and Friends,

Join fellow Dickinsonians on a journey to the exceptional national parks and monuments of the Southwest. We’ll enjoy the guidance of both an expert Orbridge Expedition Leader and our faculty host, Professor Susan Rose ’77, P’13.

In Phoenix, we’ve added a special visit to the Heard Museum to view “Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories,” the exhibition that Professor Rose and College Archivist Jim Gerencser ’93 contributed to withmaterial about the Carlisle Indian School.

We’ll travel to Grand Canyon National Park for awe-inspiring views from the park’s rim. We’ll admire the beauty of light striking Antelope Canyon’s narrow sandstone walls. We’ll share a peaceful evening with Navajo storytellers and ponder cultures past and present at a petroglyph site during a river raft ride down Glen Canyon.

In Utah we’ll spend time at Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks—viewing rock formations and otherworldly landscapes that must be seen to be believed.

Space is limited on our private motor coach. With significant savings of more than $800 per couple, we anticipate this tour will fill quickly, so reserve your spot today and feel free to share this brochure with family and friends who may be interested in traveling with you.

Please reserve online at, by calling (866) 639-0079 or by returning the enclosed reservation form.
