CAUSEY RESERVOIR -- Loud splashing noises resonate from the steep canyon walls as one swimmer after another takes the 30-foot plunge off of a cliff into the dark, deep water below.

"Man, that was a rush!" a young man shouts up to his friends above after resurfacing, slightly startled at first but then visibly relieved by the cooling effect of water that remains bracingly cold thanks to the last of the snowmelt.

Meanwhile, a couple of kayakers glide by using smooth, fluid strokes to propel themselves across the channel, followed by a fit-looking man on a stand-up paddleboard. Off to the side, a couple lazily floats on inner tubes under the scorching summer sun.
