Kayaking in Golden Colorado

Clear Creek runs through Golden, Colorado.  Brave souls kayak on this water.

In the spring the water, new snowmelt, is very cold and runs fast.

We watched these men prepare and enter Clear Creek with kayaks.

As they waited for the rest of the group, these two ventured into the small rapids.

these men didn’t seem to mind the cold temperatures.  The water and air were fairly cold this late April day, and the wind was also chilling.  I, Zeb the Duck and my human friends, loved watching these kayakers.

Maybe later???

We did not kayak today.  Maybe we will on a warmer day, but I’m not too sure about this.  If you want to kayak, Golden, Colorado is a beautiful place to start.

  1. Thanks for dropping by my blog. Looks like we saw many of the same sights outside Denver. We loved Colorado and how to see the southern part on another trip.

  2. I love your blog! The ducks are super cute and add to your amazing adventures! It’s my dream to travel to Colorado one day, and looking at your posts makes me want to go there even more!
