Action on the Arkansas River, Colorado

This beloved river is a favorite of kayakers and rafters. It is amazing to watch the fun from the train which enters the Royal Gorge and runs by this river.

I am deeply concerned about environment, wildlife, and animal welfare, feeling a strong commitment to leaving the planet in better shape for new generations. Therefore, I support a number of charities that reflect those interests.

I have a degree in English and Library Science, but if I had my life to live over, I would have loved to have been a photographer, writer, and/or National Park ranger.

    I can see the kayaker thinking “Do I try to dislodge them by ploughing through, or should I be more subtle?”

  • Steve, leave it to you to be less than subtle. LOL

    Fabulous shot…. LOL @ Steve… I was thinking the same thing… the look on his face is priceless!

  • I just love this action shot. To think that I shot it from a moving train makes it even more amazing. Thanks, Maurie. Love to get comments.
