Um, Paradox isn't on, or even near the San Miguel.

Its probably useable for a bigger boat like a raft or cat, just expect to do more work hauling gear from the parking spot to the launch point....
Maybe you mean Uruvan, not Paradox.

So what does this mean for kayaks? You guys and your rafts I'm not in the least concerned with.

It means you'd be bored, very bored, and feeling like left-overs; crammed into tupperware. Seriously, the confluence to Gateway, after the first couple miles of the "hanging flume" section is pretty flat, for many miles.

When the Dolores is running, you need to overdose on it while you can. I put 350 miles in on it back in 1995. It was runnable until about July 10th that year. Put another 150 miles on it in "97. I'd rather do the Dolores twice than the Grand once. Thanks to AW for helping the river as best it can.

You're right, its Uravan (Uranium+Vanadium), not Paradox which is over near the Dolores....
