Join us this September as we explore 86 miles of the San Juan River in Southeast Utah. Along the way we will visit Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings and pictographs, splash our way along the gentle river, and enjoy the tales of this storied place with award-winning author and historian Andrew Gulliford.
We will start our trip near Bluff Utah and the newly designated Bears Ears National Monument, pass through the world renowned Goosenecks, and finish in the serenely beautiful red rock bends above Glen Canyon. The San Juan is known for its wilderness quality experience, exceptional star gazing, and memorable side hikes making for an unforgettable adventure!
