boating canoe vegas black canyon of the colorado river • 4 days

Get away from the cold, snow, and smog, dig out your Tevas, swim suit and T shirts, and come paddle/float a piece of the Colorado River, from natural hot tub to hot tub. See how long you can last in the 130 degree temps of Sauna Cave. Putting in at the foot of Hoover Dam, just south of Vegas, we will spend three days floating, camping and hiking and kicking back, while only going 13 miles downstream. Scramble up canyons to great hot springs, stop when you find a nice pool or when it starts to look like a canyoneering trip- if you decide to push for the top it can get pretty interesting. Driving down Thursday March 5, launch Friday morning, take off river at noon Sunday and drive home Sunday evening. Sea kayaks or canoes available on location, or BYO. This is a very short notice trip, there is only one launch time left, so this has to be a snap decision, right now, to commit and sign up, by friday the 6th the spots will be gone.
