While its not cool enough for LHC, it is top-of-the line in whitewater. 14-foot AVON "bucket boat." Oar rig or can be ran as a 5-person paddle raft. Launched it yesterday on the Moab daily stretch on the Colorado River. Fun shake-down run. Class 1 rapids (yawn. Not the the Grand's class X).
Very stoked. Will apply for many permits during the winter application season. Hopefully draw a couple -- especially a Grand -- put really hoping for Yampa, LaDore, Middle Fork and, best of all, Upper Salt. Come along!
