Our website exists because of all of you and your great photo and video contributions!

Ceiba sends out one mass email in the dead of winter each year. It is to invite all of you to submit your photos and videos from your adventures in Grand Canyon and elsewhere. And man, do you all ever deliver!!! The deluge of outstanding imagery we receive is awe inspiring! Thank you! Our staff so looks forward to experiencing your photos and videos from your trips. We can’t thank you enough for all your contributions!

For our home page lead-in, a special shout-out to Derek Moody (learn more here) for his awesome video footage and to Bill Powers (learn more here) for his original (wrote the tune while on a Ceiba trip in the Canyon!) musical composition "Big Water Ahead".

The viewers have voted!
