Colorado Late Season Festivals III: Glenwood Ender

For the last of the easy-to-digest chunks of my series on Colorado late season festivals, here is a writeup about the Glenwood Ender. If you recall from last time, Conor Flynn demolished me at the Gore race. I partly blame Dan Glauser, because he didn't let me borrow his Detox, but that's fair...

Scotty's 2010 South African Season (A photo essay)

2010 has been a great season for me. With almost all South African rivers being rainfall dependent it often requires a paddler to put in a considerable amount of effort and travelling in order to get quality whitewater.
