    Desolation and Gray Canyons: 84 miles of the Green River with 50+ class II and III rapids along the way. I failed to secure a permit in the lottery for 2017 but picking up a cancellation was pretty easy. I chose August because I love the heat and I hoped to miss the bugs that are notorious in...

    The Yampa

    Being pretty new to rafting, I had a progression in my head on how I thought I would develop my skills and get to the point that I could row serious whitewater rivers. My first year (2016) I did some easy stuff like Ruby Horsethief, the Green Daily and the ABC in Flaming Gorge. I figured the...

    8 Days in Desolation Canyon

    Overnighter in Green river

    Last thursday I had plans to drive up to Wyoming and float/fly fish bighorn river. But at very last moment trip got cancelled due to overflowing river and prospect of poor fishing. I had already days off from work and already boarded one of my dogs at the camp. I had already almost reached...

    Floating into the Maze

    Wasn't sure where to post this, under "backpacking" or "everything else" since it was a combined trip so apologies in advance. I'm only 4 months late in talking about this trip. The following jaunt spanned the end of March and ended in early April - typically a bit before the spring run-off...
