You all Should Have Been There. What a beautiful place to kayak and
Mike Kovach, Steve Booth, Maureen Grant and myself, Bob Grant took the
trip. Steve was our guide as he had been there on several occasions
before and Sunday Steve showed us a spectacular place to kayak and get
into some great white-water. We arrived at launch in the town of Elora
at about 1:30 and the cloudy sky opened up and gave us almost two
hours of sunshine. We eagerly set up our equipment and got onto the
water just below the Elora mill. The scenery is truly wonderful with
high rock walls ( some 200 feet high) and very vertical. The water
level was likely about 2 feet above summer levers making for some fast
water and no spots needing a portage. Maureen and I did portage two
spots that looked a little wild for our experience levels and we set
up our camera gear and took shots of Steve and Mike ripping through
the rapids and we did get some spectacular shots. Our trip time was
almost three hours with our camera stops and watching Steve and Mike
play in the rapids. Elora Gorge is a great place to kayak and we will
be back there real soon.
