Canoe/kayak on the Rio Grande - cancelled

Sat, 2013-06-01
Mary Thompson and Jean Dewart

 May 29, 2013 - trip now cancelled due to closure of river access due to fire danger. 
Canoe/kayak the Rio Grande, joint trip with the Sierra Club.  We will paddle the section from Algodones to Alameda, about 5 hours and Class I, suitable for intrepid beginners as well as (possibly rusty?) veterans.  


Boat owners will arrange their own shuttling.  


Non-owners will independently arrange to rent canoes or kayaks from Quiet Waters Paddling Adventures QWPA will provide shuttle service for boat renters and rental boats.  Neither the Sierra Club nor the Los Alamos Mountaineers will be involved in the rental arraingements beyond coordinating a meeting time and place for all participants.  QWPA requests that boat renters reserve a boat a couple weeks ahead.  Contact QWPA directly for boat rental information and reservations.
We will all meet at the put-in at Algodones, paddle more or less together, and will stop for a picnic lunch mid-way down the river.  Bring a picnic item to share.  Details on meeting time, what to bring, etc., will be sent to participants closer to the date.
Please sign up with Mary or Jean by May 16.  Tell us if you have a boat or will rent a boat and if you are looking for a paddling partner.
