We will be running the Class 2 rapids of the Uncompahgre River through Montrose, CO. None of the rapids are Class 3, but there will be some rocks that you will want to avoid. This river is not deep, but it is fast! In the middle of this run we will go through the Montrose Water Park with some big drops which are a lot of fun. They are not difficult but they may take your breath away! Here is a video of some of us going through the Water Park from the last trip we took: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQ2S3XVIbzI). Some of you may recognize Shirley in the yellow kayak. I am in the purple and blue one. The launch site is just behind the Target store off of US50 in Montrose and the take out will be on a small side channel at Tavawach Park. If you have Google Earth, you will be able to find aerial photos of both of these locations: 2355 Air Parkway, Montrose, CO for the take out and Target, Montrose CO for the launch site. Afterwards we can relax at one of the local restaurants or micro-breweries for a late lunch.
