play kayaking in the Black Canyon?
Hello everybody! I am new to Colorado and love playboating. I'm interested in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. I recall posts about play kayaking in there and wondered how good it is. I would also like information on the takeout. What is up with the shortcut I've read about? Is there any good surf in there? Is the camping good at the put-in? Is the water cold? Can you do it in 1 day easily? Is the portage really that bad, and the ivy? I am planning on a Sunday run with my friend. He doesn't know much about the run other than what the "bible" says. Any information would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance! MITCH
