Open to the public. Let the magical waters of the Gunnison River whisk you away through the high red sandstone canyon walls of the Colorado Plateau. Museum educator Jennifer Moss Logan will share stories of those who left their mark on the local landscape, from ancient native peoples to the colorful characters whose adventures brought them westward. Jennifer will offer activities that help you explore the mindset of explorers long ago. This trip indulges both the adventurer and historian at heart.

Canoeing in Colorado on the Gunnison River will spark your sense of adventure with opportunities for hiking and exploring, floating in your lifejacket and camping along the river’s edge. During this Colorado canoe trip covering 31 miles, you will be dwarfed by high walls of red sandstone and shale deposited during the age of the dinosaurs.  These canyons in the Colorado Plateau are truly magnificent and not soon forgotten. Massive cottonwoods stand on many river bends supporting the huge nests of blue herons, hawks and eagles. You may hike into Dominguez Canyon, Colorado’s newest designated Wilderness Area, one of the most beautiful stops on the river. Hiking into the canyon will reveal deep, cool swimming holes, waterfalls and many ancient Indian petroglyphs (rock art panels).
