Peter the Yampa is a fine section, just not for the whitewater kayaking, in my opinion. The camping was great, did some awesome hikes, incredibly beautiful canyon. However, my crew isn't cool with a kayaker breaking away for the day to do their own thing, and then find camp at the end of the day. We pretty much stick together and do the hikes together during the day, or at camp. Next time, I will bring my raft, not a kayak.

Yeah,its one of the best in the west,but its still about as flat as flat can be,generally. I'm not sure how kayaking it can give you more options than a raft or where there are tight places to eddy out. And when its at a high level you don't even need to row. We went from Harding Hole to Box Elder in one cold,breezy May day and we didn't even touch the oars. You make good time in May....

We had it in the 3-4k range last month and still never rowed. Plus,still had time to stop at any side canyon,Mantle Cave,Hatch Cave,HH,etc....
But sounds like you're a hardshell boater anyways,kayakfreakus,and will have a sick trip regardless. Yampa really IS badass
