River History Expedition
With the Museum of Western Colorado
Desolation 5-day: June 11-15, 2013
This trip is perfect for any history buff. Follow part of the route taken by river explorer and naturalist, Major John Wesley Powell in 1869, on his epic journey of the Green and Colorado Rivers.
Our expedition begins under the towering cliffs of Desolation Canyon on the Green River. Along the way, stop and read from Powell's journal and other river explorers' notes as they faced the same rapids and excitement.
The canyons of the Green also hold some wonderful rock art dating back to the early Fremont. See some of these great panels and enjoy the early history accounts dating back to the fur trappers
and early settlers of the day.

Twenty four-Day Gates of Lodore-Hite Marina
After spending hours around campfires speculating about ideal raft trips, Adventure Bound has pooled the resources necessary to offer special 18 and 24-day expeditions. The 18-day, beginning at Deerlodge Park,
will begin June 1st, and ride the crest of the high water snow melt down the Yampa, Green and Colorado rivers. An ideal high water chase! The 24-day trip begins at the Gates of Lodore on the Green River and will launch September 1st.
Each trip is designed to allow plenty of time to explore rarely visited side canyons and other special stops along the way.
When we arrive at our normal take-out for Dinosaur National Monument trips at Split Mountain, the oar boats will be re-supplied and equipped with an outboard motor. Our rafts will buzz through the little-traveled
stretch of the Green in the Uintah Valley. This stretch is ideal for bird watching along the banks, covered with thickets of tamarisk and willow. Numerous historical Indian sites in the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation are within walking
distance from shore. Next, we enter the mouth of Desolation Canyon. Desolation and Grey canyons contain 50 rapids, cool, clear-water tributaries, numerous Anasazi sites, isolated, abandoned ranches and unspoiled wilderness. A change of rafts
awaits us at Green River, Utah. We will re-launch with 27-foot pontoons and motors for the final leg of the trip. The sheer walls of Stillwater and Labyrinth
Canyons open the Green into a meandering course past Anasazi ruins and decrepit uranium
mines. The confluence of the Green and Colorado is followed by the rapids of Cataract Canyon. Lake Powell will force the trip to a close as the waters of the Colorado are stilled behind Glen Canyon Dam.
This trip promises to be the raft trip of a lifetime! Over 400 miles of wilderness and water, hundreds of rapids, dozens of mouth-watering meals and untold memories lie in store for those willing to experience this premier
