This was the second time I'd paddled down this stretch of the Colorado River. Levees on both sides, but there are still some nice beaches and views. This time I did the trip solo, asking a friend to help me shuttle my vehicle to Topock Marina ahead of time, so it was there waiting for me at the take-out.

Once you pass the outskirts of Needles the Havasu National Wildlife Refuge is on the left. On the right there is a railroad track but otherwise little development. It's fun to watch the trains go by.

Taking out at Topock Marina you'd have the opportunity to sit at the bar at Topock 66 Resort, but I didn't do that this time. I paddled up the channel toward Topock Marsh but not very far.
