Successful Trip! Posted by: MMF on Oct-07-12 10:37 PM (EST)
Thanks to all. We used John Luff -- great service, school teacher for 41 years, retired. Tried Loma cafe, hit it on a bad day; others also recommended the restaurant. 26 7th graders and teacher and chaperone scheduled to sleep over at Hole in the Wall that night -- decided to paddle on to Slaughter River Developed Camp site. Did 35 miles that day. Beautiful night, clear. 40 mph west wind predicted next day. Early start, rosy morning, did rest of 12 miles and got to Judith Landing before the winds started up in the morning. Had water to spare -- hosts at both camp sites very helpful. Great paddle, wished we had tried it to Kip Landing. Has anyone who has been there this year encountered any prairie rattle snakes? Saw as many warning signs as alligator signs in Florida. No mice but ranger said that they have the fattest coyotes in the country because of the mice. No racoons or other food supply predators. Want to try Green River Utah next year. May use the letting water sit overnight/then filtrate method for that trip.
