ARKANSAS RIVER KAYAKING! Photos Of Kayakers And Web Cam In Salida, Colorado - June 21, 2006

Arkansas River Web Cam The Arkansas River Play Park web cam ... Woo-hoo!

Today after hosting my Wednesday morning radio show titled "The Colorado Coffee Club" on 106.9 KHEN in Salida, I visited the very interesting "play park" for kayakers on the Arkansas River. The city of Salida has done a great job of promoting the river in ways that kayakers and onlookers can enjoy the recreational value of it.

I want to thank my friends who captured a photo of myself standing around on the edge of the river. It was indeed an enjoyable morning, and I must say, those kayakers have really inspired me to maybe take the sport of kayaking more seriously. ;)

This is the third web cam sighting I've done this summer. My two others have been: Downtown Telluride and Monarch Pass. Hee hee! It's been a lot of fun visiting web cams, and stay tuned to the front page to learn of the next one I visit! :)

    This girl in blue was quite talented as well. I must say, I was very impressed with how she handled turning upside down and sort of floated just a bit before turning back over.
    Arkansas River I think these are used as kind of a slalom competition for kayakers. With the Arkansas River running through it in it's infancy and childhood stages, Chaffee County is definitely known as one of the most popular spots for kayaking and river rafting!
