San Juan, Bluff to Mexican hat

Some photos of a short overnight with a required permit on the San Juan. Short and mellow with 2 class III rapids. Very chill, and would be a good beginner run since the rapids can be portaged with a pack raft.

The Gnu was great, stable, and quick. It DID fold a bit in deep troughs, but those guys really enjoyed it.

Re: Up for some Fall Northern New Mexico runs?

Grant, give me a holler. I'm mostly skiing now, but we can at least discuss future plans. I'm based out of ABQ.

Re: Sedona??

I believe the only option near the Sedona area is Oak Creek Canyon, although I believe it would only have enough flow either during spring run off or possibly after a monsoon storm. Another option a little more south of Sedona would be the Verde River, again best run during spring run off. I've pac...

Re: Packraft Discrimination

Well just got off the phone with Kelly and discrimination is alive and well at Dinousaur even if you're in a group with rafts. She told me I must have three air chambers and that seat chambers don't count (floor chamber would?). She said there was a modification I could do to add tubes inside the b...

Re: New Mexico PR's.

We do a little packrafting, and have done a few runs that you might take a look at. Below is a vid of a few NM runs we did last year. The issue with the Middle Box is the shuttle. It'd be nice to work out a hike, but for our trip we shuttled it with a vehicle. We did from La junta to John Dunn Bridg...

Re: TR - Gunnison Gorge, CO

Great info mhay. Here's bike shuttle info for those interested. We recently did the Chukar to North Fork section, and biked the shuttle. We stashed our stuff at Chukar the night before, and Karen Tucker at the BLM office spent some time figuring out the best way to ride back there with us, and it wo...
