Our team is Darin, Natalie, Opie and Rocky Kellum. Kayaking, snowboarding, camping and traveling present us with plenty of challenges, but with Darin's good looks, Natalie's good luck, Rocky's brawn and Opie's brains we manage to have a good time.

Mom and Karissa Come to Visit

Pueblo Whitewater Park

A while back ago Darin and I went to Salida to meet up with some folks and run Bailey. Unfortunately the water dropped out of Bailey, but we heard a rumour that the Pueblo whitewater park had epic water that had created some waves. We loaded up the van and headed straight there, but 3 hrs later when we arrived the water had dropped. No waves but a couple okay holes made in a section of the Arkansas that looks like a drainage ditch. The murals painted on the riverbed look pretty cool, and Darin made the local paper.

Exploring Yule Creek

Darin and I headed up to Marble to check out more of Yule creek. We boated across a lake and then followed the creek upstream. We made into the canyon and to the the top of the first waterfall, but neither of us ran it. I did gather up some gusto and jump off of it. We will kayak Yule....Someday.
