Westwater Canyon Video

Just thought I'd share my trip down Westwater Canyon this past weekend. We did the same portion over Friday and Saturday. Flow was 5,000 on Friday 3,400 on Saturday.

Enjoy

Thanks for sharing! Did a creek blew out or something? That water is way too muddy for July time.

Surprise and SITM almost got you guys!

Keep that bow line coiled up, such a foot entrapment.

Yeah, I struggled with that bow line.

There were some serious rain storms up north the days before the trip. By the end I felt like I had taken my shorts into Red Hanger and asked for the heaviest starch they had.

Yeah, some of those rapids were quite wild. It was a blast though!

Was that the first time for your boys on Westwater? I took my 10 year old son this year as well for his first time to Westwater, he had a blast.

2 votes for that.


Also, how were the ants at the ranger station? They were quite crazy in late June.
