Have You Ever Wanted To Try Kayaking?


Learn about kayaks and which kind is best suited for you and your pursuits.

Rim Country Outdoors, owned and operated by Steve and Linda Kime, will offer a kayak demonstration day at Green Valley Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

"I will have a half-dozen styles from the shop, plus I am bringing in more than 20 from the manufacturer," Steve Kime said. His shop carries Old Town Kayaks and Canoes, as well as Ocean Kayaks.

In addition to providing information on how to select the right kayak, the Kimes will let those interested go out on the lake with a kayak and paddles. Life preservers will be provided. Steve or his wife will be on the water at all times, if anyone gets into trouble.

The Kimes opened Rim Country Outdoors May 1 at 3906 E. Highway 260 in Star Valley. In addition to carrying kayaks and canoes, the shop carries hiking and camping gear -- it is an authorized Coleman dealer -- plus water shoes and boat-towed toys.

Rim Country Outdoors is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

They can be reached at (928) 468-1100 or (602) 361-9963 for more information or to schedule an after-hours appointment.
