Tim shot this photo while driving from Boulder to pick me up in Denver. He'd just stopped off at Canoe Colorado, where he picked up our NovaCraft Prospector, which the shop rigged for us for whitewater paddling. Knee pads, an extra thwart, and cargo netting to keep our gear from shifting.
Last fall, Field & Stream Online Editor Nate Matthews and his father, Bruce, spent 15 days fishing the Rio Grande River from its headwaters in Colorado’s Continental Divide all the way to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico. These excerpts from their journals tell the story of their 2500-mile motorcycle ride along the historic river, taken during momentous times in the lives of both father and son. Photographer/vidographer Tim Romano documented the excursion. Look for the print feature in June 2011.
