    Assuming this Coronavirus thing is over by then; I'd like to do West Canyon over Memorial Day weekend.

    I'd like to see it all so a four day trip is planned.

    I'm looking to share boat costs. It appears a shuttle goes out there for $375 each way for up to 6 people. I have at least two people.

    I have been up West Canyon on a day trip, but didn't get to see everything. A multi day trip would be much better.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    PS, if you already have a boat, I will be your friend.

    I'm pretty pessimistic that my wife will permit me to be out and about by Memorial Day :(, but if she does, I'd be super happy to contribute funds etc. I'll DM you if things are looking optimistic? Also many thanks for your comments in the other thread.

    I'm sure everyone has already guessed this, but the trip is postponed because the canyon is closed to visitors right now. Maybe 4th of July weekend?

    It depends on when the Navajo Nation opens up again. I'm not going to poach canyons on the reservation (even via boat), especially since the Navajos are asking people to stay away.

    I'm still hoping for 2020.

    If you settle on a solid date, LMK. I have a possible 2 peeps (myself and another) that would be interested depending on date. (we would fly into PHX)

    Since I got a few recent enquiries, I'll just say that this trip won't be going this year since West Canyon is closed and will probably remain so for a long time. I'm not going to illegally poach it. I will wait until it's open, but this likely won't be until the season is over, so it will be at least until next year.
