Floating the Lower Gunnison

So I was a little nervous about making friends in Ridgway. It’s been a long time since I lived somewhere long enough to really make good friends. I made a few phone calls to acquaintances and I’ve found that some of them are well an their way to becoming good friends. Over beers at Colorado Boy, I found that I was happily welcomed into a slew of Labor Day weekend fun.

The four day weekend started Thursday when I left work and headed up to Paonia and met with the crew at Revolution Brewing (I was impressed with their brews). Afterwards we headed to Paonia’s Pickin’ in the Park.

The next day, most of us set out on the Gunnison River for a nice relaxing float. Sprocket spent the whole time being the puppy in charge and had a much less relaxing time…
