We went into town last night to see the high waters on the Big Thompson River along the Riverwalk. There were 2 kayakers who were enjoying the high rapids immensely behind the Casa Grande Restaurant. We stayed for about an hour and watched them playing in the hole, doing all of their moves. They were really quite good.
We got to talk to them as they took little breaks to warm up from the very cold temperatures of the river. One was from Wyoming and the other was from Tennessee. They were practicing for the kayaking tournament in Lyons this coming weekend. They were thrilled chance to play in the high waters and rapids of the Big Thompson River in Estes Park!
