9.5 hrs? Holy shit! I did it in 2011 and remember being glad that we brought playboats to do Steven's down afterwards so it was worth the drive. Isn't it only a couple of miles? I think we did it in an hour or two max and most of that time was pulling out a submerged boat we found in the middle of the river.

Did you spend all your time climbing in and out of gorges looking for wood or what?

Was actually serious about wondering what took so long, esp. given the recommendation to go run it. We not doubt benefited immensely from the prior cleaning fest. I remember lots of class II/III and a couple of fun stretches of whitewater in the gorges. My notes said it was beautiful and fairly remote (we saw a moose), and I was glad I did it but the whitewater wasn't worth rushing back for. That was with only having to deal with a few minor wood issues. Good for you for getting off the beaten path though. I think exploration is the best part of boating.
