    When geographers determined that the Colorado River was actually a continuation of the Grand River, and not a new, distinct river formed at the confluence,the name "Grand" was dropped. The river is now known as the "Colorado" from its source in the Rocky Mountains to its mouth at the Sea of Cortez.

    If you are in the market for a good "all around" river adventure-one that will introduce you to the geology and prehistory of the canyon country; provide you with the opportunity to do a bit of nature study and a lot of hiking and exploring; and one that offers a "short, but sweet" dose of exciting white water, Cataract is the trip for you! We offer motorized expeditions in the spring and early summer, and then switch to rowing trips later on when water levels are more suitable for the smaller oar-powered rafts.

    During the river journey, we camp nightly on sandbar beaches, explore ancient Indian ruins, swim in natural pools and waterfalls, and take several short daily hikes. If time and weather conditions permit, we may also take a longer hike over the Loop or into the Land of Standing Rocks (above photo) where unsurpassed views of Canyonlands National Park reward our efforts. On many of our trips, we have observed sizable herds of desert bighorn sheep. Mule deer, coyotes, ring-tailed cats and mountain lions also inhabit the area
