times change, my best boating day this year was leading 5 year old, Cisco down the Yampa at 135 cfs. Second best day was taking him and his sister down together the next day. She swam, he cleaned the run! Many great days on Casey's pond with those two and little brother Peppi are a close third.
Next year, Yampa at higher flows, Ruby Horsethief, Upper C, CO below Shoshone? The future looks bright after several years of little paddling!
Thanks Pete @ Backdoor for the use of the Jackson Kayaks!!
