Notes:The Moab Daily is a fun and very scenic run through Professor Valley upstream from Moab, Utah. The difficulty of the run is dependent on the flow. At flows below 6k, it is a very mellow class II run. Above 10k the fun picks up substantially. From 20k to 30k it becomes a solid class III run with some impressive features and challenging hydraulics.
