Thinking of long trips to Cali?
Careful! One problem is that you'll get spoiled and lose interest by the time you get back to Colorado.
The other is that your friends get sick of listening to you babbling on about how sweet it is back in Cali... It still blows me away that you often have some of the most amazing runs all to yourself.
I get to work out here, so life is good.
Darin's blog is far and away the best of all the Cal boating. Top quality photos that are the only ones I've seen which give you a true feel for the drops, as well as useful information on the current state of various runs.
