Grand River 

 

Best seat in the house

 
As always we try to get out on the Grand any chance we get. With a nice sunny forecast and some friends and family we made a great day of the West Montrose to Scheider Park. 

Wading in the water

 
The Grand as always is a great paddle. Lots to see, a plethora of wildlife ( great for birding) the water levels are slightly low as to be expected. The gang only got hung up a few times as we traveled down. 

 

Happy paddlers.


 With water levels low it meant our new Swift Kevlar was staying home. We’ve been in search of a river canoe for the last few months but I’ve yet to find something I like. That meant one of our older Scott boats would be making the trip with us (Id forgotten how heavy they were)

 

A well needed juicebox break keeps the troops in line.

  All in all it was a great day spent on a local waterway. Many people take their local spots for granted . Yes this may not have the scenery the Temagami has but it’s a nice escape for a few hours and a great way to spend time with family and friends. 

 

Okay so maybe this is the best seat in the house


Cheers

  1. Looks like a great day. I’m thinking about paddling the Grand River, it’s modern name is the Colorado River, of course, in western Colorado next week. Seemed like a funny coincidence. BTW – I picked up a used Old Town Penobscot 17, made with Royalex, and it’s pretty light. I’ve taken it on the Colorado and Gunnison rivers and bounced it off some rocks and it seems to be holding up well.
