Upper Salt - Horseshoe Bend to Roosevelt Lake

Allan put together a nice lil adventure, that consisted of doing a monsoon float down the Upper Salt from Horseshoe Bend down to Roosevelt Lake. The Shuttle started off by parking a car at the Roosevelt Lk RAP off of 288, and then heading back up the highway to Young Rd, and then a series of FS roads. I believe the total distance was about 27 miles of driving. It was super freaking hot, considering it was 8/17, and we didn't get on the water till about 12:00. The 13.5 mile float took us about 4.5 hours. The flow was about 400 cfs. Other than an occasional strainer, it was pretty mile class II stuff. Here is a vid of the day: Here is an interactive Google Earth Tour:
