Guided Tour - "The Bosque"
As the Rio Grande passes through Corrales, the river widens and slows considerably, braiding into multiple channels as it meanders through seemingly endless cottonwood Bosque. Although this trip is quite close to the sprawling development of greater Albuquerque, the participants will not see any of it, as the east bank is dominated by the Sandia Pueblo lands, while the west bank is entirely protected Bosque preserve. We’ll stop and provide a light picnic at one of the many islands or sandbars we’ll encounter, before returning to civilization at the take-out at the Alameda bridge.
As we approach Alameda, the Rio spills into numerous narrow channels, winding it's way through several small islands, providing an almost tropical feel. Songbirds and waterfowl are plentiful in this section, and the views and sense of solitude are nothing short of remarkable. This is a very mellow float trip with few sections of fast moving water.
The Bosque Tour involves approximately three hours of "river time".
