found paddle on clear creek
i saw it, but couldn't pull it out of the river. .after black rock there is a a white blade, straight black shaft paddle pretty much in the middle of the creek, totalyy submerged but visible. custies couldn't back paddle very well, so stopping to retrieve wasn't a viable option. it is in the first few hundred yards of "energizer" - or whatever everyone else calls the rapid after black rock. if its your i hope it gets back to you.
if i'd known it was gonna be that kinda party...
