The picture was shot just downstream of the tunnel on highway 14 on May 29, 2014 with a huge snow melt flow in the river. There are not many parking spots in the Little Narrows, but you can find some near the tunnel.

Illinois River Meanders through Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge

Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge

Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge

May 25, 2014. Flooded Illinois River meanders through Colorado’s North park. This is a view from my favorite view point on highway 14 just a few miles east of Walden. In addition to a great scenic you will find there a lot of historic information about the region from native Americans to fur trappers, coal mining and lumber industry.

The above picture were shot when I was returning from a paddling trip on North Platte River from Walden to Northgate Canyon. I stop at this spot almost every time when driving near Walden. You can find more pictures of the Illinois River in my stock photography portfolio. These royalty free images are ready for download and license.

Canoe Downwind Sailing on Horsetooth Reservoir

I have been using Pacific Action Sail with Sea Wind, my expedition canoe, designed by Verlen Kruger.

Sail-paddling is a favorite way to cover distances in Sea Wind, my decked expedition canoe designed by Verlen Kruger. I have been using 1sqm downwind Pacific Action Sail since 2004. It was a great solution for WaterTribe challenges in Florida or paddling upstream of the Colorado River in Camyonlands. In the above picture, I am just enjoying time on Horsetooth Reservoir near Fort Collins.

Pacific Action Sails were developed in New Zealand by kayak enthusiasts to enhance the paddling experience. Over more than a decade of development, our sails have established a formidable reputation with expeditions and adventure racing world-wide, are great for touring and a breeze to use.
