A fun paddle from Davis Dam down to Rotary Park in Bullhead. Another section of river completed, in my quest to paddle the Lower Colorado. It's a local group. I had posted it on their website, and 3 fun people showed up.

Nevada to our right, Arizona to our left. We passed the casinos of Laughlin, which I'm told are struggling financially right now. We stopped at a bar called Lazy Harry's on the Arizona side, had lunch. One guy fell in the water as he tried to get out of his kayak. He was a total noob, and was dressed in cotton clothing. He had a change of clothes, luckily. We all just laughed.

So, it was a different sort of paddling day for me, since of course I usually seek out natural areas. Lots of riverside houses as well. I always look for the yard art. One house had winged cats, bighorn sheep, and all sorts of things but I couldn't get close enough for a good photo. We also took a spin around the Laughlin Lagoon. It's got a very fancy marina which went out of business very soon after completion, and has been closed, and bank-owned, for some time.

The river has been running very low lately. We saw only one power boat. It's too shallow for most of them. Much better for kayakers, and more beaches to land on, also.

Next section to complete will be Needles to Topock Marina. Stay tuned!
