I'm in Colorado

Colorado is awesome. The scenery and hospitality are more than I could ask for. The rivers are continuous, fast, and cold. I have a great opportunity with work on my aunt and uncles horse farm and board at their pool house. It was a long drive out here which resulted in me driving straight to Lawson Hole on Clear Creek. I have been blessed and paddled 9 out of the 10 days I have been here. All is good and I am ready for more. My runs are as follows:

1-Lawson Hole (Awesome)
2-Lower Boulder Creek (solo)
3&4-South Saint Vrain (Super Continuous After work Mankfest) (AKA- The SSV)
5-South Saint Vrain (High Water- First Swim- I put up a good fight but lost to the hole)
6-A Day of Rest ( still worked at the farm)
7-Source to the Upper Eagle and Homestake (AKA- Home slice- including piece of s**t)(gnarly)
8-Clear Creek of the Arkansas (2 Runs - Cold)
9-Big Cimaron (long shuttle- lots of wood)
10-Oh Be Joyful (AKA- OBJ, big beautiful bedrock)
