Kayaking the Colorado River 225 miles through the Grand Canyon in real time would be awesome, but doing it in 10 minutes from the comfort of your own home is pretty neat too.
If you can't make the trip, at least live vicariously through the guys at Surf San Juans.
Shooting rapids and gently floating through pristine and awe-inspiring beauty is what this stretch of river will bring you. Through this video, you are privy to some of the best footage from this self-supported float trip through the mother of all ditches.
Stretching out on the beach under the stars while the sounds of the mighty Colorado River rolls past your campsite; sharing a hot cup of coffee around the stove or even and warm meal in the evening around a campfire; any of these is what the trip is really about.
Okay, so maybe you can't go to the Colorado and experience the Grand Canyon, but you can set off on your own adventure on any stream where you live. Find a kayak outfitter near your home and check into making your Colorado dreams come true.
