Dolores River Trip
Two weeks ago members of the Animas Riverkeeper board and some friends traveled to the Dolores River for a fantastic one day push from the pump station to Slick Rock. The river was running around 2,000 cfs. We had a paddle boat, an oar rig, and a kayak on the trip, though after a paddle was lost the kayak toured most of the river from the back of the oar rig. All in all the trip was uneventful, and included good friends, great water, and a beautiful scenery. It was nice to see water in the river and it was a strong reminder of what a gem the Dolores River is. We ran into some friends on the river who were taking advantage of the consistent flows to do a 5 day trip. Now that's living.
