The logjam blew out this week!

Before and after, from the guy who owns the bridge above Terminator Rapid.

I've been hearing about that creek since I moved up here! Would love to get on it. excellent.

Unless all that wood just shifted down to a lower rapid? Is that possible?

It is possible, but hopefully all of it won't be concentrated in one spot anymore. The portage route had been across that mess previously as well.

I can't wait to get on it as well - the logs came in just as I was getting to that level of boating. I'm stoked now!

Sweet! Anna you'll love it! Best low stress waterfall creeking I have ever done!

Keep us posted on where all that wood goes (hopefully it doesn't trash Kahuna and Champagne).

Wow, that is awesome. Canyon Creek is such a good run. That second photo looks like a pretty healthy flow!

I never thought I'd see the day. CC is one of my all time favorite runs anywhere. It's the first creek I ever ran years ago and I've loved every lap I've done since. Can't wait to get back up there and run it again now. Thanks for the good news!

All praise the river gods! They taketh and they giveth anew. Champagne is one of the most beautiful drops I've seen. Love that run.
