Green River Kayak Trip: Pure Serenity
After almost eight months of planning, my kayak trip down the Green River in Utah finally came to fruition. This was my first true “river trip” and I was lucky enough to enjoy it with a really good friend who knew his way around this river.
The 55 mile trip took us down the Green River thru the Stillwater Canyon which lies deep in the depths of Canyonlands National Park. We began the 3 night 4 day adventure at the Mineral Bottom put in just outside of Moab, UT and pulled out just past the confluence of the Green and Colorado rivers. The picture’s posted can not even begin to do justice to the scenery that met us at nearly every bend in the river.
Every night we camped under the stars on some of the softest sand I have ever felt. There is something very serene about falling asleep outside under the stars next to rocks and a flowing river that are millions of years old, I felt very insignificant in the cradle of a such a beautiful place.This trip was one of the most magnificent I have had the pleasure of taking.
