While I was in Colorado, Midwest paddler cliff Langley was working hard to organize the new version of the annual paddle mania event. This year blast to the bridge meant the swinging bridge at jay cook state park which finishes off with a 15ft waterfall! I absolutely LOVE this stretch of river and was sad I missed the wonderful event. Duluth, mn is really starting to step up in support of our kayaking events and a huge thanks goes out to all the sponsors!
