Green River Rafting - Day 1
Green River summary page
wasn't enough for you, here's some more pictures from Day 1 of our multi-day rafting trip.
We saw the Green River the day before from the Harpers Corner overlook inside Dinosaur National Park
Some pretty amazing rock formations
Here's a closeup - turns out we had lunch the third day on the Green River on this sandy beach
After a pre-departure meeting the night before, we met at the OARS office in Vernal, Utah early the next morning for a couple hour drive Northeast to the Green River put-in at the Gates of Lodore
Alek & Kyle in front and Dirk & Wendy in back about to push off down the Green river
Bret Wojciak paddles us out from the put-in ... he was great!
About to enter the Gates of Lodore
Scary looking photographer dude! ;-)
Kyle smiles for the camera as we get closer to the Canyon walls
Dirk was also pretty darn excited about rafting down the Green River
Kyle and Dirk look up at the Canyon Walls ... and yes, that is my camera bag that was moved shortly!
David pulls on the oars of another boat - our river trip had five guides with 15 passengers
Coming in to our first stop at one of the typical sandbar beaches on the Green River
Dirk and Kyle give a thumbs-up to the tasty food - it was great - you won't go hungry on an OARS trip!
Wendy and Bret reflected in Dirk's sunglasses
Camera bag has been stowed as we enter the first set of Green River rapids - lots more of these to come!
