Is there even water in that neck of the jungle? I always thought the whole Vail Valley area was so full of Gaper sediment that all their water was immediately diverted to the front range in order to avoid Gape Contamination...a very serious water parasite known to cause Jesture hats with bells and one piece pink and black snow suits to permanently attach themselves to all who come within a 10 mile radius (rare occurrences of one piece Purple and Pink snowsuits, Cowboy Hats, and Fuzzy baby blue knee high boots have also been reported on both male and female patients). I remember in 1992 when Regiment 23 from the Salvation Army had to dig massive ditches to catch all the snowmelt and divert it towards the South Platte before it reached the watershed. They lost four members to the parasite after their anti-gape suits were torn by nearby brush, and Denver Health had to quarantine them as soon as they returned in order to keep this nasty, nasty thing from spreading to the rest of the cool FR community. Unfortunately, Denver Health gave them too much AGFRCS (Anti-Gape-FR-Coolness Serum), and they turned into Californians…never to be seen again. The Salvation Army has been trying to track them down ever since. They had a couple solid leads that led to the suspicion of Justin Timberlake being one of them, but they could never prove such a mutated being used to be a valiant soldier in the Salvation Army.

Anyway, be careful out there…don’t forget your AGFRCS shots and by all means, stay out of that creek.

"It sure does suck..."

Actually, I've never paddled the Eagle below the Dowd takeout, but I couldn't resist the opportunity.

Any paddler knows it take a few years of experimentation to create the right feature. look at all the parks and they did not happen overnight. Give it 2 years and it will be fine

Wow. I am sorry for offending anyone who lives in the Vail Valley. It was just a joke meant to be at your tourists' expense, not your's. I am sorry, and will attempt to restrain myself from going near a computer after consuming massive amounts of rum in the future. I seriously didn't mean anything by it.

The Avon park is not the easiest park in the world to play in but the town of Avon has allocated money to fix it when the water goes down.

Let's just keep our fingers crossed and see what happens next year. Even the Salida holes took a couple of years to get dialed in.

The park is still being worked on. Most parks take a bit of tweaking before they are perfect. Also consider there were several restrictions in place that may have made the features more challenging to create. I look forward to seeing what happens when they make the corrections. It is a good location and the improvments should make the area even nicer.

iKAYAK: no need for apologies I too though it was funny, some people are way too serious and show their true colors as much as they claim you did.
