Along with nine new and old friends we retraced part of Maj. John Wesley Powell’s route beyond the 100th meridian in four fiberglass canoes and a kayak. Launching on the Green River at Mineral Basin after a nerve-wracking drive down a dirt road full of switchbacks, we paddled the last 52 miles of calm water through Stillwater Canyon on through Canyonlands National Park to where it meets the Colorado River south of Moab.
