It's Spring. Oh, the places we'll go!

Spring, my favorite season. The anticipation of rivers beginning to flow. Thoughts of the sound and feel of the river.

Today, while packing paddling and camping gear, switching from my home/winter world into nomadic paddler's paradise, I had to seize the moment. It's dumping snow in Telluride.

After a deep back country powder ski, the gurgle at the creek crossing, reminds me of all the river adventures that are about to begin!
Getting pulled toward the warmth of a desert river and the California ocean.

Looking at the c4 Waterman SUP for fun on the ocean waves, and family time on the lake and river. Would like to take the SUP, and/or kayak, and family somewhere tropical this spring or fall, like Mexico, or Panama.

Paddling in Colorado most of the Year.

See you at Paddle Fest. May 27-29.

I love this event! Fun People, great paddling, music and deals on gear.
The Buena Vista play features are so fun. The holes are great, and the new fast wave is amazing!

Paddling in Idaho. Plan to finally paddle South Fork Salmon, and some other new runs.
Kelly's White water park was fun last fall, even better with great flows.
U.S. National Freestyle comp. is July 9th and 10th.

Locally in Telluride and Dolores the kids are rockin' on their rolls and river skills. I am teaching some kids and adults river running and play boating.
Spending time with my daughter on the lake in a Jackson Fun 1.

A fall paddle trip to the Ottawa, and other Eastern Rivers. Warm water, good times.
