It's actually only 7 days and 6 nights, and we're not bringing a motor, which is what most people do to make the trip in 3 nights. (We're also rafting, not kayaking, if that wasn't clear.) We're hoping to have some time to hike up to the maze at Spanish Bottom, and possibly into Dark Primitive Canyon. Believe it or not, most people think we won't even have time for that if the upriver winds kick in early.
Do you remember the water level when you went last year?
