Hoping to manage a Zion Narrows trip if I can catch the water

More on my long weekend list than I have weekends, but I'm making a good effort to go explore some places that I've never been.

Arizona was supposed to go big. I've wanted Tonto Creek Hellsgate for way too long now. Would settle for an East Verde (Doll Baby) all the way through the Verde for a self-support. So much on my list down there, but looks like that season is a dud.

Colorado list; Dolores, Los Pinos, Yampa Canyon, White River (side season), also considering a marathon run with partial self-support for the length of the Arkansas.

New Mexico; Doing a long section of the Rio Grande would be fun, like Atom's 4 day. Rio Brazos is missed and appealing. The Gila or Canadian if they run for self-support trips.

Wyoming; Yellowstone Nat'l Park (What is legal?), Fremont Canyon, some Beartooths.

Montana; Really excited to do some big trips here, since the drive for a weekend is pushing it. Want the Beartrap, West Stillwater, Stillwater 3 day mission, Trout Creek, Sweetgrass, MF Flathead, maybe SF Flathead.

Idaho; Owyhee, Hells Canyon, SF Payette

Not that I won't hit some standard classics. Now I just need to figure out where to go next weekend.

Cutch ,

Not sure if you were referring to my post on Yellowstone. I meant stuff near there or on the way to and from in Wyo.,probably Greys, Gros Ventre, Hoback,or other creeks enroute from your book.

I meant the Pacific coast of Chiapas , so really south ,Mexico curves to the east down there. Tapachula is a base for several runs ,a lot of IV some V with opportunities to explore [ Mayan White Water ]It could be another Turrialba or Boquete. A couple of raft companies have come and gone because no one knows about it and no major airports nearby or tourism promotion,not for lack of good water. Guatemala City is really not that far. I' ve looked at some unrun stuff, travertine plop and drop 3 -4 over by Tabasco too.

cayo, I knew what you meant. I like all of those runs. When I was a kid I learned to kayak on the Hoback for a few family vacations. I'm excited to playboat around Jackson (Alpine Canyon).

I really wish I could kayak in Yellowstone park without legal repercussions.

My bucket list of new runs for 2012;

Idaho: South Fork Salmon, East Fork of the South Fork, South Fork Clearwater and Upper Lochsa. Marsh Creek and Dagger Falls

Colorado: Upper Rio Grande, Lake Fork Gunnison, Crystal Narrows and Piedra.

Not new, but want to get back to Gallatin, Madison (Beartrap Canyon) Gore and Cross Mountain.

It's pretty finicky. People go lower, but 1500-2000 is what I look for. The basin snowpack is at 71% of average so if it does go don't look for it to last long.

Nothing new in June, but for sure, MFSalmon, SFClearwater, Lochsa, Bear Trap, Gallatin, for starters.
The Hoback's my front yard, The Snake's the backyard. Not complaining.
