The Four Amigos
A few of our guests decided to explore Dominguez Canyon for a few hours while on the Gunnison River. A cool and refreshing waterfall awaits them just a mile up the trail.
Plus numerous petroglyph panels.
Not So Scary Hail Mary
Hail Mary Rapid on the Gunnison River provides a few thrills on a warm summer day. Be sure to have your "bailer" ready because folks have been known to take on a little water.
Prickly Pear Cactus Flower
This gorgeous desert flower blooms every spring in spite of its arid environment. But a word to the wise, it may look pretty but its guarded by what seems to be invisible thorns and plenty of them.
Who says water can't be found in the desert? These folks take time to chill along Little Dominguez Creek on the Gunnison River. Just what the doctor ordered on a warm sunny day.
The Deceptive Cactus Flower
The Prickly Pear Cactus flower looks like it would make a great bouquet. But not so fast because it’s protected by a network of thorns that are not only hard to see, they also have microscopic barbs at the end that make extracting them a real “pain.”
The Illusive Petroglyph
This particular petroglyph panel is found one hundred yards from the river. What's interesting is that very few people know this panel even exists. But the Centennial guides do!
Coming Into Camp
The paddlers in this photo are approaching their first night campsite. The sandstone dome, also known as the Windgate Formation, in the background is typical of the surrounding scenery---very dramatic!
Where's my Margarita?!
Beats Mowing the Lawn
These folks are approaching Dominguez Canyon on the Gunnison River, where they'll most likely camp for the night. The Gunnison is one of our most popular trips and offers ideal paddling for all skill levels.
(Just say no to yard work)
