san juan white water rafting and inflatable kayak - May 29, 2013

This will be a 6 day float down from Sand Island to Clay Hills. We will drive down on Tuesday, May 28, to get an early start on Wednesday, and hopefully get off the river fairly early on Tuesday June 4th, for the drive home. I will be applying for a permit for the indian side of the river, in hopes of hiking Chinle wash and some of the other interesting archeological sites on that side of the river. This is a pretty easy river through some truly amazing country, both for its scenery and its history. I would like to see this trip include a number of inflatable kayaks, as well as a couple rafts. The club owns some of these, and I have access to rentals at the university if we need more. The boat mix of this trip will be dependent on the skills of the participants, so please let me know your river experience when you email! We will try to get on the river fairly early each day, to avoid winds, and to leave plenty of time for exploration and hiking. It's a great opportunity to practice your river skills, or to share the skills you have with new folks, in preparation for more challenging rivers. We will also be eating well, so camp skills are also in the mix! A $100 nonrefundable deposit is required.
