After spending Saturday at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and getting home later than normal again, Amanda and I woke just before sunrise so that we could watch the sun come up over the Grand Mesa from our hot tub. Once it was up, I had some breakfast and then met up with my friend Jackson so we could float a section of the Colorado River from the Palisade River Bend Park to Corn Lake. It’s a shorter section of the river, but we didn’t want to make an all-day trip out of it…..just spend a few hours on the river on a nice day. One of my main reasons for this trip was so that I could try out his new Aire Tributary Tomcat Tandem inflatable kayak since I am looking at buying one over the winter for next season. After spending the afternoon on his boat, I can safely say that I will probably be picking one of them up! It will make a great boat for day trips and overnight trips on easier stretches of river!
