Gate is open. Eight paddlers total on Saturday. Forty-two and a raft on Sunday! The wood is out of Double Trouble. About two minutes after spending over two hours wrestling a good size piece of lumber, and finally removing it from the river entirely, the rafters appeared on the horizon line. They eddied, took a look, Leif showed them the sneak and then I stepped in to show them the proper line. Both of us stomped it giving them the necessary motivation. They then fired her up, not even getting their hair wet! After the raft cleaned it, the flood gates were open and there were some sweet lines and giant smiles in the pool below.
I know there are some sick photos out there. I'd like to do a photo essay on coloradokayaking.com, so if you are willing send me some shots peeps. Adrian, Holly, Leif, Casper, I know some other peeps had some cameras too. Send me some shots and I'll post them this week.
