Paddle the Colorado River: Paddle from Glenn Canyon Dam to Lee's Ferry. It is about 15 river miles. We will be camping overnight on the river at Swale Ferry. There are dry toilets there and no potable water.
I am only taking people who have camped on the river with me before this, unless you have a lot of experience kayak-camping.
Life jackets are mandatory, and no drinking please, while on the river. At the campsite is fine (You can bring extra to share!). No inflatable kayaks.
We will camp Friday night at the Lee's Ferry Campground. You have to have an America the Beautiful pass or purchase your pass on the way in to the park.
An opportunity to hike at points along the river exists, so bring water shoes or hiking shoes that will permit this.
There will be 4 shifts of 6 people being shuttled up the river between 7 am and 10 am on Saturday.
Things to bring:
1) DRY BAGS - This is a must!
3) Food for Saturday night on the river 4) Hat
5) Camping gear
6) Temperatures can drop to freezing at night, so bring warm clothes
7) Hiking shoes
Hope to see you there!
