Ditto vaultman but leave out the slate. I did that and did not feel the magic there.

Also the Big South.

I said it last year and failed... miserably, but I have yet to do one single run in the entire crystal/Roaring fork drainage!

Blows my mind that I have been paddling for 8 years in Colorado and never once. NF of the Crystal is where I have my eyes set first, then the gorge. Probably going to avoid the inner though.

Also, the embudo is HIGH on the list and will be done early on here.

Great topic!!!

Brazos and Crystal Gorge

Life is overly busy for me, but if I were to get some saddle time in on the Embudo, Pueblo, and UTB soon, then I have the possible connection for getting on the Brazos this year. And if I could get a lap or two on OBJ then I'd like to maybe notch the Crystal Gorge. Ran Mill Falls at really high water once, but the Gorge was obviously not conceivable then.

Harvey, I'm pretty certain you could count on a Black trip with us once or twice this summer if you'd like to join Horton, Shane Smith and I. July is a great time, hot and high, but I want to experience it low once too. I think it was 1500 when I've done it before, which was a great level. I definitely think a two or three day trip is the Dr's orders for my brain (though the body whines WFO).

I'm beginning to think that introducing kids to team sports is a bad idea. Being soccer dad and having weekend interuptions is testing mey tolerance. Life is work all day and then the kid job all night and weekends. A thought for any parents to ponder: start your kids on skis, kayaks, and bikes at three and never let them pursue school sports. The family that plays together, stays together. My kids had the best time lapping the Headwall, North Face, and racing down International last Sunday. Best of all, I got my exercise too. Hoping the kids take to the river and trails that way eventually.
