Western River's Snout Rig in Cataract Canyon

The Speedy Little Raft in Cataract Canyon

Often described by the guides who drive them as "the Corvette of the Colorado River", the Western "Snout-Rig" (it's technical appellation) is nimble and quick between the waves, and fast on the flat water in between. Certainly lacking in heavy duty "trunk space" compared to the much larger J-Rig raft, the snout rig raft makes the same 100 mile journey through the canyon in half the time - while uncompromising in camp comforts and menu. The only down side is not seeing more than one sunset and sunrise from the depths of Canyonlands National Park.
