We went into this years Deso trip wanting to do minimal rowing and tons of hiking, but as always, the winds kinda held us back. We still got to do some great hikes and spent lots of time in the Canyon. We laid over at Jack Creek, and were forcefully laid over at Steer Ridge because of the "W". None of us had ever done Deso in low water, so it was really cool seeing all the exposed rock in the river and having to take more technical lines down the rapids. Three Fords was my favorite rapid at the low water. Here are some photos and a video: Enjoy!!!

I just saw this pop up again when I was making my report and finally got the chance to watch the vid. You guys did it right spending 8 days. I can't wait to go back and get out of the boat more often.
