Green River (Deso/Gray) and San Juan to Grand Gulch

Post by andydennis » Thu Dec 12, 2013 3:56 pm

Just back from three weeks in the canyon country spent with buddy Galen, wife Kailyn, and gf (of Galen..) Meagan.

Trip 1 (Galen and Andy): Green RIver. Fly from Green River airport (terrible food/fast security line) to Sand Wash. Float down to Green River town. Great level for packrafting--2200cfs. 6 days; pretty causal.

Trip 2 (Whole team): San Juan to Grand Gulch. Launch at Sand Island at 1800cfs (river drops down to 600cfs in two days). Float down to Grand Gulch. Hike up Grand Gulch. How bout those ruins!

Great trip with great people. A good change up from the typical AK/Patagonia although colder.
