|kayak on Colorado River|
To be brief, it was awesome.
While my buddies were gambling in Vegas, I was enjoying the serenity of the Colorado River between Hoover Dam and Lake Mojave.

The surprise that awaited me was the hot/warm springs. I had no idea they existed, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out that those little streams that joined the Colorado River were actually flowing with warm water. And on some of them, that warm water was dammed to form pools that were filled with bathtub-like water that was just the right temperature. Talk about relaxing. I kayaked all day and visited three warm spring canyons. That whole time, I only saw two other people on the river and one other person in the hot springs.
