I've researched these sorts of things extensively... I believe there is only ONE Escalante River and only ONE Escalante Creek. And to make it easy, they are in different states and flow different directions (even if they share a drainage).

Now that we have that taken care of... Keck, you should probably just start listing your location as Texass now and put things like ex-ski patroller, and ex-mank crew member. It's class III slalom for you for the next year.

Psst, Tom, it's "weigh in on the best places to snag some meth." Stay in college, you may need these skills for your future distribution career. Economy sucks, it takes a bachelors just to make it dealing meth these days.

Cutch- I'm pretty sure if you read the thread up to the point where I asked what run was in question, you'll find that the body of water was actually referred to as a "river" by paddlehead in the very first posting, and was never referred to as a "creek" until after I asked about it.

Keck- I've heard rave reviews of the Escalante RIVER in Utah: spectacular scenery, camping, side hikes, and even great access for canyoneering. Maybe you should check it out sometime- that is, if running a lowly class I-III run wouldn't tarnish your hardcore class V creeker reputation.

Mr. Denali (since you don't seem to like brah), I apologize - we're just messing with ya. You are right about the Escalante river - beautiful place. OK, now big deep breath....awww. Have you actually climbed Denali? That's a huge acheivement.

"Small rivers may also be called by several other names, including stream, creek, brook, rivulet, and rill; there is no general rule that defines what can be called a river."

Naaaah Joe, I haven't climbed denali- an aspiration from my younger, more masochistic days. These days sitting on a beach in a canyon somewhere with ample beer in my cooler sounds like a way better idea than slogging uphill for two weeks freezing my nuts off eating GU.

That is a good photo. Reminds me of a Big Thompson trip where my buddy did this:

I don't think it was even his bootie! Echhhh!

That would be a question to google for or check a guidebook. God forbid someone have to repeat information on an INFORMATIVE FORUM.

Can you see how "Camping heads up at Escalante" is a bit vague? Anyway, thanks for the clarification.

By the way, I'm not your bro, bra.

Dude I am in to watch, but all the meth I have been smoking has left me a little on the limp side of life. Let me clean up first.

Who gives a rats ass if pot is legal, meth is where its at, and Joe and Tom do lines off hookers penises. (TOOL reference).

This sucks, I have to move back to the Fort where the "hardcore" thing to do is smoke some sticky icky and drink four homebrews. I like banging cougars while hopped up on god's gift to rednecks

Just so we are clear that was a 1/4 stick of Jimmy Walker and it was rocket propelled. Not a flare, not a firework...dyn-o-mite!

I've never boated before, but I have posted a lot on Mountain Buzz!
