Hi, All -
I'm hoping to do Cataract Canyon as a 2015 goal. Looks like Potash to Hite Marina on Lake Powell is the preferred run. I think I saw somewhere that above 30k it gets pretty knarly, but not sure what that means exactly.
What time of year / CFS do you guys like the best?
Do you run your own shuttle? Looks to be about a 3.5 hr proposition one way. Any recs for outfits the run a reliable shuttle service?
I have a 6 HP motor. Do I need to register that thing? I just got it last year and am not clear how to register it for rivers. Who manages that stuff - NPS? If my motor is registered in CO, can it cross into UT legally?
How many miles / hours of flat water is there where we'd likely run the motor?
Is it true that anyone who applies for a permit gets one? They mention Canyonlands specifically as a given, but do we need two permits - one for Cataract Canyon AND Canyonlands?: River Permits - Canyonlands National Park (U.S. National Park Service)
How's the camping?
Any other pointers?
Thanks very much and Happy New Year!
