I ran the Tallulah Gorge on the 1st release as well....swam in Bridal Vail falls!!!! I was trying to run the right line off the pillow and thought I was a bad ass. That swim nearly drowned me. I was pummelled to the bedrock floor and had to get my feet under me to push myself downstream. Learned my lesson and never ran that line again and have actually only swam once since then. Give me a call if you want to boat....720-291-7435.
I am making a trip to Telluride on Friday morning to run the Dolores, San Miguel, and maybe Escalante, Big Cimmaron, or Kannah Creek.
