Rio Grande Ute Mountain

I have secured a launch date for the Ute Mountain run on the Rio Grande for June 2. Looking for a few people (IK's best, kayaks/Canoe ok, rafts: super light and super strong only) to join a friend and I. This run is class 1-II but very scenic, remote and full of wildlife. Put in is in Southern Colorado, and crosses into New Mexico, twenty six miles. The takeout is 500 vertical foot trail with a few tough spots so must travel light for this two day trip. I have a local shuttle arranged or we can do our own. Water will likely be low (hoping for at least 250, won't run it any lower). I ran this last year around the same date (Been through here three times). Looking for good people, wilderness boaters and light partiers to join us. Could get a different launch date if necessary.

I am very much wanting to do this trip with you but I have another permit for another River. Please let me know when you do it again.

The larger the river of knowledge the longer the shoreline of wonder.
