Packrafting Utah’s Green River – A Bucket List Experience

Over four days and three nights, I completed a Utah packrafting trip, and it was magical.

I packrafted through the Green River near Canyonlands National Park,  seeing everything from canyon walls larger than life to what I believe  (and hope) was an otter making a swan dive into the river.

We'll talk about what packrafting is and a suggested packing list in case you book this kind of adventure for yourself!

How Can You Go Packrafting?

You can read the packrafting page on Canyonland’s site which goes over permits, equipment needed, etc.

With my bag strapped in and my lifejacket clipped on, I threw my camera into a dry bag and set off on the river.

Preparing for Launch

And once I felt that current pushing Scott and me further down the  river, away from the boat launch, we laughed and laughed and laughed.

Launch Time

The following two days consisted of non-stop paddling. There were multiple times we approached canyon walls larger than life.

I couldn’t believe I had spent 14 years living in the desert, yet I never bothered to see it in this way.
