Coloradans - please represent with photos.

Hey Coloradans,

We are currently putting together the Colorado chapter of our new whitewater guide, "The River Gypsies' Guide to North America." We still have some photo needs and want your help. I know some of you have good pics of these runs, and I want to represent Colorado well in the book. If your pic goes in the book, you will get a free book when they come out (March, 2010), and you will be entered to win the drawing this fall for the Pyranha kayak of your choice.

Shots must be hi-res. For River shots we want shots that show the character of the river/rapids and the setting/scenery, not glory shots of the paddler. Playpark shots can be glory shots, close ups of you and your buds throwing as nasty as you want, but a wider shot that shows the whole spot AND has someone getting nasty in it is better. Here's the list of runs and destinations that we still need:

Poudre - Narrows, Upper & Lower Mish, Bridges, etc.
Lyons Playpark
Boulder Canyon and playpark
USB, Lower South Boulder, and Eldo
Clear Creek - Kermitts, Black Rock, Lower, playpark
Lake Creek
Royal Gorge
Upper East
Animas Town Run, but NOT Smelter
Steamboat play

If it's not on that list, please don't send pics of it. We either already have pics, or that run is not going in. Part of the deal here is that we decided to cover a lot more front range stuff than we originally planned, and we didn't shoot photos. I'm kicking myself because I've done everything on that list except Lower Mish and Bridges, and I should have shot photos. But now I need your help!

Please help us make the Colorado chapter of this book epic.
