The Upper A.
For about a decade Dan and I have worked on the Upper Animas, a stretch of class V whitewater between Silverton and Durango, Colorado. Our trip is an overnight and it is where we spend the night that has kept us hooked into working up there all of these years. Camp Needleton is a big one on the “to be missed” list. Here are some pictures from our weekend. Additionally I would like to include my first ever blog “shout out” to the fabulous folks we took down this Sunday/ Monday. Here’s to you guys- what a great couple of days and especially, here’s to the a**master.

The camp is semi-permanent. This is the main guest tent.
Needle Creek a short hike from our camp.
Sunset on the cliffs.
We use the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train to run our shuttle. Here's the train coming by camp Sunday morning.
See the frost on the boats? It was a bit cool that morning.
The Upper is class V and anything can happen. One of our boats got cut by some metal in the river. But didn't our buddy Dale do a nice stitch job?!
What a great town.
