white water rafting lodore canyon - June 11, 2013
A towering canyon marks the entrance to Lodore Canyon on the Green River, where we start our 5-day adventure through one of the most beautiful stretches of river anywhere (and second only to the Grand Canyon, in my opinion). Lodore Canyon is followed by Whirlpool Canyon after joining the Yampa River, then through placid Rainbow Park and lastly through Split Mountain. All of this in one river trip is hard to beat. It includes rapids named by Powell like Disaster Falls and Hells Half Mile (made a bit tamer by our rafts verses Powell's wooden dories). We leave Salt Lake City Tuesday, June 11 and return late Sunday, June 16.
