The river mileage quoted in the Falcon Guide is incorrect. From the put-in at Confluence Park in
Delta, CO to the Hwy. 141 bridge at Whitewater, CO the distance is 44 river miles. If you use a
lower common put-in for this trip at the Escalante Canyon bridge (Escalante Canyon Road off of Hwy
50), the distance down to Whitewater, CO is 29 river miles.
