I just spent a week hiking down the Paria. It looked very possible to creek it if you could catch
the water levels right. I hiked in through Buckskin Gulch, no way to take a kayak in that way. I
don't know what it looks like if you go in through White House. The upper part of the canyon would
not have much in the way of rapids and would be extremely dangerous if rain was a possibility. The
flash floods are deadly. The lower part of the canyon opens up more and has some areas that would
make for some good creek boating. I will be posting a lot of photos from my trip to my Flickr
account, look for Paria Canyon and Boilerblues.
