There is no national capitol, just regional ones. Also, we have creeking, playboating, river running, multi days etc. and they're all good. I just ELFed the Numbers in peak color. There are equally awesome places to paddle but I've never seen a better place. Headed out for 9 days on the San Juan in the morning, another awesome place.
