A little different layout for today’s post.  Thought I would share several images of some experienced kayakers playing in the Animas River just outside of Durango Colorado.  I managed to catch these “guys” out on the water ripping it up.  It was amazing how fast they could turn their kayaks in the raging water.   You”ll notice one of the gals only has a single canoe type paddle.  Turns out she was practicing for an upcoming Olympic sport called canoeing (crazy name huh).  They use kayak type boats but with a single canoe type paddle.

The other thing I found amazing was they never tired the whole time I was there.  I shot for over an hour and they were still going strong.  Even with a water temperature around 42 degrees.  They are freaking awesome.

As always each pic can be made bigger by clicking on it.

Enjoy.

Love the look of concentration.

This has to be hard with a single ended paddle.
