Gearing Down and Gearing Up

Yampa River

Here at Sheri Griffith River Expeditions we are starting to gear down from the height of our 2013 season, just in time to start gearing up for the 2014 rafting season.  We loved meeting new friends and re-connecting with old friends as we traversed the canyons we call home. We've already received reservations for the 2014 season, and it is starting to look like a great rafting seaon! 

As part of our "gearing up" for the 2014 season, we are offering a special September special on all of our rafting trips!  If you've been following us for a few years, you know that we always offer our "Next Year's Dates at This Year's Rates" until October 31st, but this year we are offering a special incentive.  If you make your reservation during the month of September and pay for your rafting trip in full, we will give you an additional 5% discount!  This discount works in addition to our group discounts and our return guest discounts, so you could save a lot of extra money!


Call or email Kristl for more details! (800) 332-2439Gates of Lodore


If you've ever wanted to see Cataract Canyon, the Yampa River, the Gates of Lodore or any of the other beautful canyons that we call home, this is the time to start planning!  We offer all-inclusive rafting excursions, so no hidden rental fees and no extra transportation fees will be added on to your reservation.

The history of the Yampa River

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.
