Mountain Buzz - American Whitewater's Album: Gunnison River Basin Colorado

Gunnison River Basin Colorado
The Gunnison River Basin in Colorado is rich with whitewater opportunities, including Escalante Creek, the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, and Oh Be Joyful. With over 20 whitewater runs, the Gunnison Basin has exceptional paddling oportunities for everyone - from class V alpine creeks to class I/II desert floats. In 2013 American Whitewater worked with local paddlers and visitors alike to evaluate flows on rivers throughout the Basin, and build support from water managers for policies that sustain recreational needs.
