A LITTLE DISHEARTENING
Our next destination was Green River, Wyoming. The drive northwest yielded an amazing array of mountain vistas throughout Colorado, eventually melding into the endless plains of southern Wyoming. We arrived around 4pm, and immediately set out to scout the river. It was, at best, a disappointment. Our trip took place late in the whitewater season, so the river was down. We camped at Tex’s RV park – it was late and we weren’t picky. Sam paddled the following day for a couple of hours… I figured even four time world champ Eric Jackson couldn’t do too much at those water levels. We could make Salt Lake by mid-afternoon if we hustled; it wasn’t a hard sell. Boat and gear were quickly loaded and off we went.
