Phone rings, time to get it on!, close spreadsheets, Start -> Logoff, sneak out the door, key in the ignition, stereo loud, foot to the floor, out of the city, into the hills, pressed shirt off, neoprene on (wet and rank from the last trip).
Stretch, into the boat, warm up paddle, wake up roll in icy water, squirt on the eddy line, down the canyon, horizon line, eddy out, scout, run it, next horizon line, eddy out, scout, run it screamin'...
Golden sky of sunset, last drop, smooth, linking those turns, feelin' ON, celebratory cartwheels in the reservoir.
Hike out, cold beers in the truck, blood still boiling from the action.
God bless Colorado, good livin' was never easier!
