Days 1-6:Green River, Utah, United States
Follow the path of the likes of Butch Cassidy, the mysterious "D. Julien", Flatnose Curry and Major John Wesley Powell who called this canyon wilderness "a region of wildest desolation". Today, Desolation and Gray Canyons remain one of the wildest desert wilderness places on the map, a place of Indian petroglyphs, abandoned homesteads, shadow-filled grottoes and the Green River. The Green River builds strength through more than 60 rapids, two newly formed in 1987. The progression of rapids, from unnamed riffles to the more challenging Three Fords, Steer Ridge, Coal Creek and Rattlesnake, make this a perfect place to learn the art and skills of river running. Most of our whitewater rafting, kayaking and canoeing seminars are held here. Whether learning to boat yourself or just looking for an adventure in the Old West, a trip through the Green River Wilderness can be the answer for just about anyone, family fun for every age.
