This guy paddled past today as I was standing with friends on the bank of the Rio Grande, watching the high flows of this week’s environmental pulse flow through central New Mexico.
If you look closely, you can see a bicycle in the front of his canoe. As he rode by, he explained that when he gets to the takeout, he puts the canoe on a trailer behind the bike and tows it back up to where he left his car.
There’s a bike trail along the river the whole way. This seems quite clever.
