SOAR Inflatable Canoes - Somewhere On A River

The San Juan River forms along the Continental Divide on the Mineral-Rio Grande County Line in the San Juan Mountains of southcentral Colorado, then flows southwest through Pagosa Springs to Navajo Reservoir on the Colorado-New Mexico border. Below the lake, the river flows about 98 miles across far northwestern New Mexico on Class I to II water through Blanco, Bloomfield, Farmington and Shiprock into the Four Corners area where Arizona, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico touch (the ONLY point in the United States that is common to four states.) In Utah, the river flows through Sand Island, Mexican Hat and Clay Hills Crossing to its confluence with the Colorado River at Glen Canyon on Lake Powell. This section includes reaches of the San Juan and Animas Rivers flowing through far northwestern New Mexico
