March 2004. More information about river use in the years 1999 - 2003 was posted on the Park's website today. Check out the new documents at the Park's CRMP website : http://www.nps.gov/grca/crmp/documents/stats/index.htm and cover several interesting topics. Groups sizes, trip lengths, launches by people, user day totals and other statistics are represented by charts and bar graphs. A narrative report discusses findings of the test winter permits released for four years. Possibly the most interesting of the postings is the "People on the Waitlist and How Long They Have Been on the List" summary. Also of interest is the pie chart of repeat use of non-commercial boaters.
Our thanks to Steve Sullivan of Grand Canyon National Park for alerting us to the CRMP website update.
