I'm not a kayaker, but most of the WINs are. They went on 2 paddles while we were in El Jebel, one on the Roaring Fork, and one on the Colorado. Unfortunately, the water is down this year, making the rivers very rocky.
They were tough trips, and most ended up in the water at least once. When you capsize, you have to sign the Rubber Ducky. We're going to need a bigger one if this keeps up...
We went up to Glenwood Springs several times. They have a cool railroad station -
And the rafters float right by it on the Colorado River.
We did a little walk to the cemetery at the top of a hill to see Doc Holliday's memorial. This dentist/gambler/gunfighter is most famous for his part in the 1881 Battle at the OK Corral. He died here of tuberculosis in 1887.
There's a little dislaimer noting that they don't really know where in the cemetery he is buried.
The original monument contained erroneous information, and was replaced in 2004.
I ran into Doc in 2008 in Tombstone, AZ. He didn't have much to say, but I thought he was kind of cute.
On another day, we did a 4-wheeling trip to the top of Hagerman Pass.
The weather was a little dreary, but the scenery was spectacular anyway.
We even had some rain, which made the 4-wheeling even more exciting.
Last but not least, I've been neglectful about posting pictures of rusty stuff lately. There's lots of it around - I found this in a backyard in Basalt.
