Rafting the entire park from Lajitas to the eastern border
« on: January 16, 2018, 11:03:35 AM »
I completed a solo descent - via packraft - of the Rio Grande from the Lajitas put-in to just past the eastern park border (not La Linda) during November/December 2017. The trip took a total of nine river days, but I also lay over in Rio Grande Village for reasons that had to do with the later overland portion of my trip.  A link to the trip report of my combined water and land expedition can be found below, but be forewarned it's long on introspection and short on technical details.

If anyone is contemplating a similar trip and wants more technical information on mine, feel free to PM me. I'll do my best to answer your questions.
