Lake Powell: storage pond, silt trap, evaporation tank and garbage dispose-all, a 180-mile-long incipient sewage lagoon.

I flipped my packraft in Mile Long, Big drop 2, and on one of the last rapids (can't remember which one). My buddy Jason flipped his 16' Hyside in Big drop 2 as well and lost his shorts. I ended up getting separated from my packraft and had to swim away from it in order to avoid swimming through Big Drop 3 and Jason had to help Kristie (who hurt herself in the raft flip) get to shore so he also lost his raft in Big Drop 2. We had to walk about 4 miles til we got them back. It was an EPIC trip.

P.S. Jason was naked on the hike downriver to recover the rafts

That looked amazing! I can't wait until I have an opportunity to do that.
