Put in at Pahaska Teepee just outside of the east entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The takeout is at the upper end of Buffalo Bill Reservoir.
Thanks PI! Your posts are keeping me in the search loop, and regardless of what trip we take, I'm finding out so much about trips for my future. Just got a delivery from NRS today, so I kinda feel like a kid in a candy shop and my mind is reeling with wonder about what this summer holds. Last weekend I was on a stretch of the Gunnison that has primarily been barred due to a killer low head dam. Thanks to many people's efforts it is becoming a runnable section. Bottom line: Life on the river, either in my dreams or in reality, is the place I'm loving livin'.
