Hoover Dam & Colorado River

Colorado River kayak tour

Kayaking down the Colorado River, with Arizona on the left and Nevada to the right.

Happy 2015! And here I am, still posting pictures solidly from November. (It was such a pretty month!)

On the third day of my Las Vegas trip, I got up at 4 AM and headed out on a tour to the Hoover Dam and Colorado River (through the terrific Evolution Expeditions tour company). It had been years since I kayaked, and this was a fine spot to pick it back up–even if at an insanely early hour.

While the entire 12-mile stretch we covered was gorgeous, I might have loved its solitude the most. With the exception of an occasional pontoon boat, the river was quiet and we could take time to admire its natural good looks.
