The first day of the International Adventure had guests experience Red Rock Country by land, so on Day 2, GEP Arizona wanted them to experience it by air. After boarding their chartered aircraft, the group flew over the beautiful Red Rock Country of Sedona and the San Francisco Peaks. Then they watched as the grandeur unfolded below as they flew over the mouth of the Grand Canyon and became surrounded by majestic bluffs, incredible gorges and extinct volcanoes. After landing at the Grand Canyon airport the group was transferred to the Grand Canyon Village. The guests enjoyed lunch at the world famous El Tovar Lodge. After their once in a lifetime experience at the Grand Canyon the group headed back to Scottsdale for dinner at a private home.
The Boulder House, located in North Scottsdale on prehistoric boulders soaring 20 – 30 feet is an architectural and cultural masterpiece. Interior and exterior walls are composed of these 1.6 billion year old granite boulders. The home is registered on the National Registry of Historic Places and was first introduced to the world on the 1983 cover of Architectural Digest. Recipient of both national and international acclaim for its architecture, the Boulder House has been featured in several books, foreign national magazines, and numerous newspaper articles. With its peaceful and tranquil setting, this unique venue was an extraordinary choice for the group’s dinner.
Upon arrival at the Boulder House, the guests were greeted by a Native American Flautist and were able to spend time touring and learning about the home while enjoying cocktails and appetizers. There was also a Sandpainter and Kachina Carver demonstrating their crafts. Prior to dinner being served guests were gathered around and able to observe a Native American Blessing. To continue
with the Native American theme, when the guests were seated for dinner they received a traditional “yei doll”, and the dinner for the night consisted of a Native American menu. After the guests were served dessert they received an extra treat by seeing a Hoop dance performance by a nationally ranked Hoop Dancer. This exciting exhibition left guests with an unforgettable image of this great southwestern Native art form.
