I wanted to do something special over Thanksgiving. So I decided to go kayaking in Topock Gorge! I have been wanting to do this for about 20 years. A group of us were going to go about 20 years ago and never did. Then I decided I was too fat and never went.
So I decided I was thin enough to go now and what the heck lets go do it! The outfitter that I am going through is called WACKO! No kidding. I hope they aren't really wacko. (It stands for Western Arizona Canoe and Kayak Outfitters) It really is very affordable. They pick you up in the morning at your hotel and drop you off at the top of Topock Gorge on the Colorado River (Near Lake Havasu).
It's flat water and you paddle for the day, about 8 miles, through a wild life refuge. Then they pick you up at the end of the day and take you back to the hotel. I hope I can do 8 miles in a day. Of course, I pretty much half too.
Amy, a friend from work, is going to come with me. I'll let you all know how it goes!!
