You are correct. The water was ice cold. We did wear dry suits, so an unexpected swim would not have been deadly. However, the weather was also cold with quite a lot of rain so we paddled extra long days and finished up the 130km trip in 2 days instead of 3. Paddling 65km a day solo in a whitewater canoe is actually a pretty demanding task. But as my buddy always tells me, any day on the water is better than a day in the office.

Oops - photo posted too fast. Tonight I'm in a thunderstorm in NE New Mexico - snug as a bug.

Anne,
Are you around Raton? That looks similar to that stretch.

I have yet to do that stretch. Isn't it just a short day trip? I know folks that start there and go to Rocky.

Ice-breaker, totally awesome! You call it a dry suit; we call it a wet suit!

A dry suit keeps you warm and dry. It is waterproof. A wet suit keeps you warm, but not necessarily dry.
