Took the inflatable 2 person kayak out to Clear Creek and set out to paddle. One of the paddles was missing a piece so I mostly just got to sit in front while James steered us along... what a shame : wink : . It was quite busy in the beginning but the crowds did thin out as you went along. There were groups of rock climbers and even a slack line set up with some fabric pieces dangling down... kinda wish we would have seen some of the acrobatics! There was a pretty little waterfall spring, some remnants of ruins off to the side and even some petroglyphs on the walls. We went until the end and then got out to hike a bit further along the canyon. It was beautiful at the end and I wish we had more time to explore back there, especially since most people didn’t make it that far. For such a beautiful place, the motor boats passing through distracted from the experience and made the water choppy. Apparently there was a fishing contest that weekend, and they were all still out there even as it was approaching sunset. I’m glad we got to experience this place, but graffiti and rowdy crowds aren’t my favorite way to enjoy the outdoors, so I probably won’t be back here for a while.

Side note: loved the end of this canyon and if anyone knows any routes to hike down there without any paddling involved I’d love more info!
