Float the San Juan with Friends of Cedar Mesa
Raft in the Bears Ears National Monument with FCM Staff & experts in archaeology
June 11-13, 2017
Friends of Cedar Mesa and Wild Rivers Expeditions are teaming up with premiere experts in archaeology to bring our first ever “Friends Float the San Juan” river trip. This two night/three day guided rafting trip down the Upper San Juan River will feature archaeology hikes and talks as your float this particularly rich river corridor of Ancestral Puebloan and protohistoric occupation. The San Juan’s upper canyon is an outdoor museum of archaeology with many opportunities to see ancient dwellings, rock art panels, and hand & toe hold routes.
This is the perfect time of year to float the Upper San Juan when the refreshing flows balance out the warm summer temps. The trip is all-inclusive of meals, guides, and equipment.
This is a fundraising trip to help support the good stewardship work Friends of Cedar Mesa accomplishes.
Guests are asked to arrive Saturday, June 10th at 5:30 pm for a BBQ and mandatory orientation at 7 pm where you will be given a waterproof bag and box to use for the trip. The trip launches from Sand Island on Sunday, June 11 for two nights and three days on the river, with a late day return to Bluff on June 13th. Please note that dogs are not allowed on the trip.
Cost – $890
