Virgin river meeting

Although I was surprised by the lack of turn out by the whitewater community, I was not surprised by who was there.

it was an interesting meeting. This was a wild and scenic designation meeting. They are trying to find the scope of what makes it thus. Long story short, there was no mention of kayaking as one of the recreational options.

This needs to be rectified. Please e-mail them and let them know that kayaking does matter in their designation. Boaters are not mentioned at all and are the least impacting on the designation. Please fill out the form. Also, a strong mention of the horse guides not stinking up the paddle out on the park run can't hurt. Either way, i think if we can add paddling to their grant, it will protect paddling in Zion in the future.

Please don't be douchebaggy. They are looking for options and solutions. In speaking with the top personnel, there is wiggle room and middle ground achievable regarding the narrows. Either way, your input is wanted.

This is pretty critical actually. The National Park Service looks for any opportunity possible to close rivers to kayaking. We can't let the Virgin Narrows go the way of the Yellowstone.

done. main points are you want to be able to kayak the narrows without sacrificing your first born to shamans to make the flow magically between 500 and 600.
