2017 Colorado River Rendevzous

Please join GCI for a very special celebration at Hite, Utah on April 22nd, 2017 - Earth Day Weekend. We’re going to float the new, free-flowing section of Colorado River from the Hite boat ramp to Farley Canyon.

Afterward there will be a party with live music by The Steel Belts, food, drinks, and guest speakers.

GCI asks that guests bring their own boats and transportation, and suggests using an inflatable kayak or pack raft. GCI will provide dinner and drinks the evening of the 22nd, as well as breakfast the morning of the 23rd.

This is a free event! Don't miss out on this unique opportunity.
