kayak/canoe san juan (sand island to mexican hat) - May 3, 2016

100 miles South of Moab, past Bluff UT. We will be putting in at Sand Island in the late afternoon. This will allow paddlers to travel down on Tuesday. This is a 27 mile meander down the San Juan River exploring by hiking and paddling. We will be paddling down a couple of miles to setup the evening camp. There are many sites to get out and explore along the way. One in particular is Chinle Canyon on the Navajo Nation for which we will have the permit. There are three Class II rapids; 4ft rapid, 8ft rapid (we will scout before) and ledge rapid. We will be taking out at Mexican Hat on Friday or Sat depending on the group. There is a $100 non-refundable deposit. It will go for the River Permits, Navajo Nation Permits, parking fee and some group supplies. We will be on our own with Kayak/Canoe, food and personal gear. More information will be sent out to registered paddlers.
