"Even though I would like to do the entire upper I might just have to settle for something a little more placid for this year. The sections between the CO border and lake Powell would be peaceful, but slow."

that's not quite so. Colorado to Westwater UT is mainly that way - at Westwater, you either have to have a limited permit (lottery drawing)to do the Class IV Westwater canyon, or pull off the river there and start again at Dewey Bridge - you still need a permit for Canyonlands Nat'l Park sections.

and the section from Loma CO to Westwater UT is also by permit only now fyi

and there are BLM requirements to carry a firepan (regardless of whether or not you intend to have a fire) and toilet - Canyonlands NP has its own set of distinct rules.

things aren't as simple today as they were for John Wesley Powell
