We had a stupendous Thanksgiving in the Rockies along the north fork of the Canadian River! We backpacked in, thanksgiving dinner and all, spent 3 days in an amazing yurt, hiked around our personal mountain, and found a great little wonderland all to ourselves. As always, here are some images of our trip...

Low flows got you down ?Paddle surfing will tune you up! Thanks to World paddle surfers.I ventured to clear creek for some practice stayed till 10 oclock at night. Twice now afterwork.
Wind surfboards work well for surfing up and down the rivers as local S.U.P.s surfing on the roaring Fork and Colorado rivers ,have been testing the waters. I have paddled down the Colorado grizzly to south canyon and it will work you out but is truly a great way to see the waves and river canyons that snake you into Gtown.
