Desolation Canyon - June 5-9 2010 Trip Report

We didn't see any mosquitos until the green river daily stretch. Gnats around wire fence camps and below. Water was around 20,000 cfs the whole time. Almost all the rapids were read and run. Weather in the mid 90's. Good time.

Well...the wide angle lens cheapens the size of the waves a little...but you're right it's not that bad. Although if you miss the tongue of the wave 5 feet to the left or right you'll be going for a ride in some big holes. The 2 big waves below the tongue easily hide a 16' boat in the trough and make for a good roller coaster ride.

I was thinking the same thing JBL, pretty washed out versus lower teens. Cameras can definitely make these look smaller and easier than when you are standing there. you can see those couple holes you were talking about though.

looked like you guys had a good trip. couple more weeks and I'm back there, wahoo.
