An epic adventure awaits: The Little Colorado
I was checkin the AW site and saw that the Little Colorado in Arizona is rockin. Not much beta other than sayin it's very remote, has class V and VI drops, and flows into the Grand Canyon. Oh yeah, very illegal. Sounds like fun. 51 miles to the confluence, and from there I don't know how far, but that would be the stretch I would expect possible problems from authorities. There was one picture, and the water was turquoise, as is the imagery on google earth. Looks like an awesome canyon. 2,440 cfs at 5:00 pm at the beginning of the run. I'm estimating around a 30 ft average on the gradient. Probably one of the most elusive and awesome runs in North America and it's goin now! Obviously it would be a MAJOR logistical challenge, but certainly feasible. Ideally it would involve meeting a raft in the Grand Canyon. Anyone else have any beta, opinions, or know anyone who has run this?
