Before rubber rafts, when wooden hulls were shaped for straight lines across lakes, not rivers, a man named Powell dared to explore the last unmapped and unknown rivers and canyons of the west. That placed him squarely in Utah, in 1869. They were successful, proving that "running rivers" could be done in the deepest canyons, and wildest water in North America.
It took another 50 years before Bus Hatch and his family near Vernal, Utah began taking boats - and then boat-loads of friends - down the Green River, just for the heck of it. Norm Nevills in Mexican Hat, Utah gave his horse trough a float down the San Juan River on his honeymoon... and started one of the first commercial operations after designing his own wooden boats. By the 1960's surplus army rubber pontoons changed the industry forever, the rest is even more history. Utah truly is the birthplace of the modern river running industry.
Learn more about the history of river running in the John Wesley Powell River History Museum, located in Green River, Utah.
