Desolation Canyon trip report

If you are in need of information about Desolation Canyon, perhaps my trip report will be of some help. It includes video clips of the major rapids. Of course things vary with water level - but hopefully someone will find this useful.

I so love people who are technologically competent. We were on the river exactly the same time with 6 kids and 6 adults and experienced the same stuff, but did not document it nearly as well. Thank you for sharing- it's wonderful.

Thanks for sharing. I am the person in the film "unfortunately" camping above you at Jacks creek.
You must have gone past our camp later on the windy day as we were just a couple corners ahead of you.

Good job on the trip report. Fun to re-live it through your report and funny to see myself taking a river bath.

Small world! lol

@OP thanks for the TR, we were on Lodore at the same time (same winds). Experienced the same chaos, except we had a bad flip with consequences. Luckily the winds broke and we enjoyed the rest of the trip in peace.

Loved the TR, read and watched every video and story. Thanks!
