So, it was 44 miles or so, how many days did you take? I've explored the upper parts but seeing the rest really primes me to explore it! I don't mind so much the idea of packing out the poop, I expect it will become more widespread.
Beautiful! Did you witness any features resembling cliff dwellings?
While there are lots of petroglyphs there was no sign of cliff dwellings, they may have stayed more up on the mesas above the river. I have never seen a cliff dwelling on the western side of Utah but lots on the eastern side.
I see that you camped in Buckskin itself, on a ledge. I'd still worry about doing that. I have hiked the upper two or three miles of Buckskin and the lower three miles. I'd love to do the whole thing. I hiked the length of Paria starting at Whitehouse. It really is a wonderful canyon, even by Utah/Arizona standards. The general availability of water makes it that much better.
