canoeing green river from split mountain to sand wash - October 1, 2020
We are planning to canoe 100 miles of the Green River from Split Mountain to Sand Wash departing SLC Oct 1 for 7 days on the water. Will follow Covid 19 protocols. Now is your chance to find out what is around the bend at the usual put in or take out. If you are interested, contact me by email (email@example.com) or text/phone (801-230-3623) for more details. This is a seldon run stretch of river. It may not have the deep canyons or thrilling rapids, but it does offer the following (quoting some from rigtoflip): The intensity of canyons and rapids are replaced by a soothing calm. The number of boaters in this section is less than 100 per year, and there is a good reason for this - no one knows about it. Ask anyone at the Split Mountain boat ramp what is around the next bend and you will be answered with a shrug. For the boater who continues downstream, the trip is just beginning. An adventure into the unknown, where the river flows in peaceful solitude, lies ahead. A trip in the Uintah Basin is a trip into the history of water in the west, a view of the value and controversy of water as a resource, a view that is conveniently hidden and ignorable when rafting in protected areas or deep canyons. Whether floating past irrigated fields, distant oil derricks, rural homesteads, or miles of cottonwood galleries providing home or rest for hundreds of species of resident or migratory birds, the Uintah Basin continues to provide a consistent message that water is life. Boaters will have plenty of time to watch brilliant sunsets that seem to last as long as the day itself, unobstructed and illuminating low bluffs and rolling hills in soft palates of pink and orange. The river, smooth and untroubled, reflects this evening light, adds to the beauty and surrounds you with the desert glow. The Uintah Basin offers a chance for true adventure. A forgotten river home to mustangs, deer, uncountable birds, endangered fish, and the largest cottonwood galleries in the west lie just around the bend.
