Rafting the Yampa River this Year?

Tiger Wall on Yampa RiverThis week's "Family Rafting Highlight" is the Untamed Yampa River in Dinosaur National Monument. 


A guide favorite, this river stretch is great for couples, mature families and those who want to experience some whitewater.


Just a FEW highlights your family will enjoy on the Yampa River:

 

True Family Escape: This remote setting inspires a chance to reconnect with fellow family members and relax.

What you will love: The solitude of a rarely run canyon, inflatable kayaking during the day, and playing horseshoes with your dad or sister in the evening.


What you will love about being with the SGRE family.(the GUIDES!)
The way they express and animate the amazing stories of the Yampa River. How easily they can get the job done from cooking and cleaning to rowing the boats.


Nature that makes you say WOW:
Towering Steamboat Rock, The Tiger Wall and Warm Springs Rapid- with its infamously nicknamed MAYTAG HOLE!


Things you can learn along the way:
History of Fremont Native Americans, Smore's are just as delicious at 35 as they were at 10, and that a glass of wine is WAY better on the Yampa River's edge.

Why your family should do the Yampa River this YEAR!


Lets go rafting on the Yampa RiverThe Yampa River, through remote Dinosaur National Monument is an easy escape! As the last free-flowing river in the Colorado River drainage, the Yampa can be incredibly wild in May and June.

This remote rarely run canyon gives your family a great opportunity to relax, unwind and really have fun with new friends or old family members. With options such as inflatable through classic whitewater and hiking to the Mantle Cave this years “Family Highlighted" Yampa River trips are not ones to be missed in 2014!

The Yampa River has a short season, and with snow pack's changing year to year one never knows when the next time a large whitewater season is going to bless the Yampa. This trip is one of Sheri Griffith River Expeditions' most popular and can sellout quickly

There has been a lot of Buzz in Moab over the last few months about a new company offering flights into the Moab Canyonlands Field Airport.  Well, we received the official word this morning that Sky West Airlines will be offering flights from Salt Lake City, Utah to Moab on a daily basis starting on March 2, 2014.  Here is the information from their official press release:

This press release and additional information about SkyWest Airlines can be found at www.skywest.com.

We are excited that there will be flights from the Salt Lake City airport, which is a large "Hub" airport.  I checked the price of the flights in June, and it looks like the round-trip flight from Salt Lake City to Moab will be about $174 per person.  I found this price through Kayak.com (the Delta website was working a little slow this morning).

Remember that if you are flying in to the Moab airport, you will either need to rent a car through Enterprise (at the airport, advance reservations required) or arrange for a shuttle into Moab, as the airport is about 14 miles outside of town.  Please feel free to call me (Kristl) at 800-332-2439 for shuttle information.

Is this a vacation you want in 2014?

Our river rafting trips are about so much more than just great whitewater. But sometimes you need to just enjoy the rapids. From the splashy “riffles” to the HEART pounding waves.

A little of the Yampa River History

by GriffithAdmin 6. November 2013 08:10
Yampa River History

The Yampa River, located in the heart of the Dinosaur National Monument on the Eastern end of the Uinta Mountain Range.

Geology:

The geology of the Yampa Canyon begins with layers of sandstones, limestones and shales, giving the viewer a unique "look back" at the rising and dropping of an ancient sea. As you travel further into the canyon the sheer walls of the Weber Sandstone become predominant. As the river winds its way through a maze of walls sculpted by windblown sand, walls, such as the 1,000' high Grand Overhang and the stripes of the Tiger Wall will leave the viewer in awe.

Yampa River HistoryOnce you leave the Yampa Canyon and join the Green River, entering into Echo Park, the Mitten Park Fault will blow the viewer away. Just after Mitten Park the river enters into Whirlpool Canyon the billion-year-old Uinta Mountain Group formation and the Unique Sea Stacks enter into the geologic picture. Following a leisurely float through Island Park and the Morrison Formation (where dinosaur bones are found), the river makes a dramatic cut right through the Split Mountain Anticline.

End of the Government Shutdown...kind of.

by Sheri Griffith River Expeditions 14. October 2013 11:27

Government Shutdown and
Sheri Griffith River Expeditions:

We have had a lot of people asking about our trips and if we can still run them.   Sheri Griffith River Expeditions has only slightly been affected by the Government Shutdown as of right now.


There are still plenty of great things to do in Moab, other than Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. Check out www.discovermoab.com or www.visitutah.com for a list of alternate activities to do in the area.


book onlineWe would like to thank Utah’s Governor Herbert and Secretary of the Interior Jewell, for their work opening up the National Parks in Utah. You can read Co-Owner Arlo’s comments about the shutdown in the Salt Lake Tribune here.


We doubt the shutdown will last to next year. SO…..We are still booking lots of trips for 2014!
