July 16 - July 18
THIS TRIP IS FULL AND A WAITING LIST HAS BEEN STARTED, please contact Judy Moisey-Asay at canoeingIT@gmail.com to be added to the list.
Join RMCC for this Class I run through the beautiful Wyoming landscape full of birds and other wildlife, just a half-day drive from Denver. This is a 3 day, 2 night canoe camping trip. We’ll complete the car shuttle either Thursday afternoon or Friday morning depending on logistics and begin paddling Friday morning 10am or sooner if we can manage it, camping at Pick Bridge. Pick Bridge has 3 campsites and since we have a large group, I would like to see if we can get a site on Thursday afternoon/evening for anyone who would like to go up Thursday afternoon or evening. On Saturday we will be paddling most of the day with an early stop at the Overland Trail Cemetery/historical site. We paddle Sunday morning and plan to take out between noon and 2:00, allowing people time to return home Sunday afternoon or take a leisurely soak in the nearby Saratoga Hot Springs.
It is mandatory that you have a Wyoming Game & Fish Invasive Species decal for your boat and your boat also needs to be inspected when entering Wyoming (https://wgfd.wyo.gov/Fishing-and-Boating/Aquatic-Invasive-Species-Prevention). This is an ACA-sanctioned trip requiring either an ACA membership or a $10 single-event fee per person.
