Traveler's View: Utah Public Lands Initiative Defines Political Chasm Over "Conservation"

In taking three years to craft their blueprint for how public lands should be managed across a large portion of Utah, U.S. Reps.

Exploring Cataract Canyon In Canyonlands National Park Via Raft

The Colorado River flows the length of Canyonlands National Park in southeastern Utah, but the highlight seems to be Cataract Canyon if you listen to paddlers. While some outfitters negotiate a roughly 100-mile stretch of the Colorado River from near Moab to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area in a day or two, and others in six days, the main attraction is Cataract Canyon with its bucking white water.

Indeed, that activity as portrayed is actually banned in national parks.

Musings While Drifting Down The Colorado River Through Canyonlands National Park

I went for a float last week. Six glorious, sun-drenched days down the Green and Colorado rivers through Canyonlands National Park in Utah. No cellphones, keyboards, motors, or engines, just some R&R with a group of fellow park travelers mixed with some field testing of the National Park System.
