Wonderful Kayak Trip
By Molly • August 16, 2019
My husband and I are intermediate kayakers. With the late snow melt, both of us were a little apprehensive about 1) the temperature of the water, 2)just how wild the river would be.
We rented the wet suit and booties (smart) and were perfectly comfortable (almost a little warm) the entire trip. The Animas was flowing at approx. 1350 CFS–Perfect for a exciting paddle, without fear! Would have liked to tackle Smelter, but I understand liability issues, so I understand the company policy. Guides were wonderful. Alex, keep on doing what your doing. “Guy with the Beard”, (sorry, you said I could call you that!), is a great entertainer, and very knowledgeable on many of the area rivers, etc. Enjoyed the trip very much!
