I’m sitting beside the San Juan River in southern Utah waiting for the arrival of a slow-motion catastrophe. For the last six days, 3 million gallons of gold mine waste have been creeping toward my home in Bluff, Utah, a thick sludge that turned the water of the Animas River upstream a sickening cantaloupe color and prompted much of southwestern Colorado, and now Utah, to declare an official state of emergency. The Animas has been completely shut down to recreation; irrigation canals and municipal water intakes are closed. The residents of Durango, Colo., and Farmington, N.M., are still awaiting full toxicity reports to determine if the spill is as dangerous as its glowing orange color makes it look. The president of the Navajo Nation, which begins across the river from where I’m sitting, has vowed to sue the EPA for triggering the spill. It’s a steadily expanding disaster, and it’s headed my way. I’d barely been on the planet for a year when my parents tucked me under an umbrella and launched me on......

For approximately half of my life, I’ve been on a quest for water. Around the age of 11, when I read a novel about a 16-year-old girl rowing the Grand Canyon, I developed a deep fondness for the concept of navigating waterways via boat. Anyone who’s ever lived with me, traveled with me, or gone to school with me knows to look in the closest body of water that will float a boat if they need to get ahold of me. Writing this, I feel incredibly blessed to recollect all the water I’ve found in the past decade, in the form of countless, beautiful Wisconsin lakes and streams. It’s been a fruitful quest. However, when I turned 16 and paddled  Read More The post A Quest, a Question and the Power of a Quiet Mind appeared first on Girls At Play, LLC - WaterGirlsAtPlay.com....

Few have spanned the spectrum of kayaking, both generationally and stylistically, as Reg Lake has. Today, he is known as a Northwest sea kayak designer and long-boat regular at Skookumchuck, but Lake began his paddling career more than 40 years ago in California, exploring wilderness whitewater.

On August 5, 2015, a group of whitewater paddlers from Durango, Colo., arrived at the put in of the Class V Baker’s Box section of the Animas River. Instead of the clear green waters that are characteristic of the river in late summer, the paddlers found the water glowing with an unnatural orange color. Cody Beach, one of the kayakers on the river that day, says that the group immediately guessed that something had gone wrong upstream at the old mines near Silverton, Colo. “We arrived at the put in and decided to go for it anyway,” says Beach. “That was before we knew what was in the waste. I wore ear plugs but I wish I’d had nose plugs too. I got a little bit in my mouth when I first got into the river and it tasted like shit. You couldn’t see anything through the water.” When the paddlers returned to Durango, they learned toxic wastewater was accidentally spilled a day earlier by an EPA crew that was working on a collapsed mine entrance near Silverton. Water had backed up in the shaft of t......
