A Trip Through Time in Desolation Canyon

It was the second day of my first rafting trip through Desolation Canyon, several years ago. After a last-minute cancellation permit became available, I set off for Utah to launch on a fresh-eyes solo trip through Deso, as it’s affectionately called. From various books, maps, and websites, I compiled a list of sites to visit and stories to learn along the way. One book in particular, The River Knows Everything by James M. Aton, offered a particularly comprehensive history of this remarkable canyon.
