Canoeing Utah's Green River through Canyonlands National Park

In 2006 and again in 2008, I canoed 116 miles down the Green River to the Confluence with the Colorado River, where a jet boat took us up the Colorado River back to Moab, Utah. Much of the trip was in the majestic scenery of Canyonlands National Park, and numerous side hikes were to see Anasazi ruins and other remnants from past hearty inhabitants of this high desert terrain.

 The video highlights the scenic beauty of the river, side hikes to various sights of interest, camp life, critters we saw, and the journey back up the Colorado River, whisked along at 25 mph on the jet boat.
