Hello new here..
My wife and I will be visiting Pitkin area beginning of september and we wondered if we should bring our old plastic Loon 160T
tandem along. I was in Pitkin solo last year riding dirt bikes, but limped away after only 4 days because I couldnt ride slow. I never looked for that quiet lake to paddle around in and regretting that now.
My idea this year was to spend two days in pitkin, then before I'm incapacitated, travel to Buena Vista and camp at clear creek res by the creek hopefully. Or visa versa.. Maybe paddle Clear creek res and cottonwood lake. But I keep dreaming about a few small white caps rolling over the coaming on a class II river though to liven things up. Wife wont be along for that float after my friend and his wife got stuck under a boulder in the Arkansas years ago. RIP Bernie and Jenn.. But I'm game, and have WW experience. Maybe rent a better suited kayak.
Can anyone recommend class I's and II's in colorado which are flowing please
? Or should we stick to the reservoirs? Thanks!
