Nice Patrick. Love the soundtrack. 3 ft... I think not, but definitely black. I was driving up when it started raining hard about 2pm. By the time I got to Uppers the water was dark but the whitewater was still white. I put in and raced cause I was scared of it flashing, not cause it was a practice lap!
A little ways into Middles there was a small mudslide and the 'whitewater' started to become grey. Then at Green Bridge it seemed like all hell was breaking loose as another larger mudslide poured in right above the rapid turning everything to black. That is except the massive foam piles that were bright white, a crazy contrast. Lowers was scary in a new way. Black. It was definitely a case of knowing where the submerged rocks were, definitely not actually seeing them. Could be an interesting race boys and girls. The new new Whiteline is now called Blackline!
