Springtime in the Poudre River Canyon – Floating over Maddog Rapid

Submitted by on March 11, 2012 – 6:09 pm 2 Comments

It feels like springtime in Fort Collins, but it’s not the spring in the Cache la Poudre River Canyon yet. I shot these pictures of whitewater rafters and kayakers floating over the Maddog rapid early June last year. I was biking with my camera along the popular Fillter Plant run. Camera: Canon EOD 5D Mark II with EF 24-105mm lens.

I was contemplating to run that river section in my packraft and use a bike as shuttle, but didn’t manage it last last. My packrafting and biking adventures were limited to the South Platte River.

  • Your pictures is so amazing! I am really amazed watching people who are good in kayaking. What is the most difficult in doing kayaking?
