August 19, 2012. Dotsero. Preparing for the start of the Colorado River Race in the upper Glenwood Canyon – 10 miles from Dotsero to Hanging Lake Trailhead. This annual race run by Jerry Nyre takes place on the 3rd Sunday […]
It was my first paddling on the Horsetooth Reservoir this year. I launched Sea Wind canoe at North Eltuck Cove from Lory State Park just dragging my boat on snow like sleds. It was similar snow scenery as four years ago when I was shooting Colorado Winter Paddling video clip. Just an easy 6 mile paddling with a long photo session at Quarry Cove.
Colorado Lakes and Reservoirs. Fishing and Boating Guide.
2008, 9th edition, paperback, 216 pages, published by Outdoor Books & M
This book provides invaluable information for paddlers in Colorado. It is 9th edition and 3rd version I bought. I own also 4th and 7th editions. I have a pretty good knowledge of my local paddling waters, but this book makes me looking at some more distance paddling locations, especially, in the mountain Colorado.
These include paddling guides for several states (Colorado, Alaska, Georgia, Connecticut and Rhode Island) and Boundary Waters Canoe Area, some more technical books like kayak surfing, rolling and fishing, and general “ultimate” books on kayaking and canoe.
I posted this little photo story in December 2006. It happens again! Beaver Pond is frozen, but Horsetooth Reservoir is still open and the South Platte River is flowing as usual.
