It's been 15 years since I've been there, so hopefully it's still there as described. Anybody been there recently?

I was there on a backpacking trip about 5 years ago, and Kanab is spectacular. It would be a push from the river in a day, but above the Slide of Susurrus there is another great side canyon called Scotty's Hollow if I remember correctly (I think Scotty's Hollow is even out of the park boundaries).
I would also suggest the Thunder River/ Deer Creek hike. Hop out at Tapeats creek, hike up and over through surprise valley, and meet up with the boats at Deer Creek. It's pretty near Kanab, so it might be tough to do both.
Elves Chasm. . .The list goes on and on. You could spend 50 days on the river trip and you would still miss a ton.
