Homero,

Do you think there would be any problem canoeing Canon Peguis? (in terms of permission, land ownership, etc.)

Canon Peguis aka Canon de Peguis aka Canon del peguis aka Peguis Canyon... 

On the Rio Concho west of Ojinaga...

Next time try "<alt>164" to get a ? or "<alt>165" for ?.  See the Extended ASCII Codes section of http://www.asciitable.com/ for more.  But whatever you do, don't put one in a file name and upload it to the bigbendgallery photo site, right Homero?

P.S.  I'll probably split the Peguis discussion off as well...

 Yes, :eusa_wall:...that "?" always got me, when uploading a file here..... :icon_lol:. RicardoM, is right.

 Now Oki, before this part of the thread is chopped off and sent to the Peguis , original thread, The Peguis Canyon if you are planning to kayak it, from the mexican side...my word of advise is JUST GO !!!...absolutely no one will bother you, you and the rest of your crew should have a spectacular time there, The Gvt. Authorities welcome your stay and will do the best to help you around, try and go upriver to the El Granero reservoir, friends tell me the views there are incredible.

 I expect...no, actually we all expect a full trip report and pics from you and family. Enjoy your stay in Mexico.

  I read an article in the last 18 months from Big Bend Gazette concerning a "new town park" established at the lower end of the canyon.   Also, I know of friends who boated through many years ago.  One rapid is a must portage, a very difficult portage, as the friends told me the largest inflatable to get thru would be a basketball.  The portage was accomplished with several ropes and lots of riggin.

I have also wanted to paddle the Concho River and when I move back to Del Rio this summer, I'll be looking into doing it. I've been almost all the way up to the river on the Mexican side, but it's been a couple of decades and things have changed since then. I'm going to try to go up there later in the summer to reconnoiter. Let me know what you find out.

AggieHiker , and when you move back to Del Rio, in the summer of 2008 you let me know. I have just rediscovered Amistad Lake, and it is just amazing. We have many canyons to explore on boith sides of the border...Kayaking of course.

  We will post many trip reports of the inland sea, for all to enjoy. That is a promise.
Stay thirsty, my friends.
