Here is a little picture gallery from the recent paddling on the South Platte River (Sunday, March 15). We paddled upstream 5 miles from Kersey to Plumb Ditch Dam and back down the river. Beautiful warm weather and pretty low water (slightly around 400cfs at Kersey).
I shot pictures of Jeremy in his wildwater racer below the dam with Pentax Optio W30 camera. At that water level I could walk without any problems on the dam crest.
We didn’t have any real problems with paddling upstream, but if water keeps falling down it may get too shallow under the bridge below the Plumb Ditch Dam.
