is right before you enter the upper reaches of Lake Powell -- it is famous for its huge whitewater. You say you want to learn to kayak so you can do this right away. I said I wouldn't mention sections and skill, but this really isn't something many would bite off in their first year kayaking. Then there would be the long lake sections of Lake Powell where a boat that is designed for whitewater would be a bear to paddle. But don't take my word for it.

If you post this on the "suggestions" board here, I bet you would get more replies. Also, "mountain buzz" has a forum that is western river oriented.
Good luck.
