We started on the Green because it's the farthest point from the sea... the Green is about 300 miles longer than the upper Colorado (and of course because it has Lodore and Deso and is mostly away from the road).
We actually planned this trip around a Nov. 29th Grand Canyon permit that Zak got about 2 years ago... then we realized that in the late fall, we could line up all the other canyon permits without too much trouble. We found out about Jon Waterman and Pete McBride's work as we started doing research for the trip.
Originally I just wanted to go on a really long river trip... but as we went along, we realized that we had a really cool opportunity to show people what the river was like, and add our voice to the conservation and restoration efforts on the river.
So thanks for watching and I hope you learn something about the Colorado!
