Lets go boating: Cataract Canyon

joeleebowdie.jpg
Lee and I have organized a river run through Cataract Canyon in Canyonlands National Park for July of 2013. The trip will be outfitted by Tour West. Here is link to their web page detailing the trip.
The price for this adventure is $1000.00+tax.

Here is some of what is typical of the river in Cataract Canyon. During spring run off the rapids can be daunting. By July and August the mighty Colorado has settled down into a fun, family friendly ride. As you can see the visuals are not too bad either.

This is a camping trip. Camp life is one of the best things about river running. You get the wilderness experience that is usually only accessible with backpacking and you get all of the comforts that a boat can carry. Expect exceptional food. Lee and Joe do the menus and they are great. Special food needs can be accommodated.

Did someone mention hiking? This river takes you into the heart of Canyonlands National Park. The hiking is world famous. Or you can just sit in the shade with a book or crossword puzzle. It is all good.
