A Colorado River

October 24, 2014  |  Outdoors  |  No Comments

Texas has its Colorado river and it makes a long trip from west Texas to the Gulf coast bringing water to a lot of key cities.. but it could never be confused with The Colorado River which is the life blood of the West.. and rolls through so many great places.. The Texas version does provide some wonderful Paddling trails and great little Day beaches like this one near Bastrop.
