Conquering Cataract Canyon

Conquering Cataract Canyon

Rafting the Colorado River through Cataract Canyon is an exhilarating experience, with some of the largest, most sought-after whitewater in the West.

This unimpeded stretch of the river offers a glimpse of what the Colorado once was, before being heavily developed and managed.

This year, river runners are in the midst of one of the most exciting high-water years in recent memory.

The Colorado Basin River Forecast Center is currently forecasting a peak in the high 70,000 CFS range, with the potential for even higher flows.

But it’s not just about the adrenaline rush; it’s also about witnessing the river reclaiming its wild self.

It’s an opportunity to rethink one of our country’s greatest environmental mistakes, which was damming Glen Canyon.
