Loved it, I would have to call it one of my two favorites (along with Taylor Canyon). Here is a couple more pics of a couple of spots I liked, too bad I don't know what to call them...

Great pictures. If you ever want to hit it again give me a shout. I live about 15-20 minutes away and if you’re going to Taylor Canyon I'd like to join you. I've wanted to have a local show me down that one for a while. During Paddlefest we went over and did the Taylor Park Run down to the reservoir when it was running med-high. We didn't know about the cross river 3 strand barbed wire in a couple of places. I caught an eddy just feet before being all amongst one of those fences. Good continuous fun though.

That's it!

Dude, that is exactly the spot! Yeah he's ok!! Awesome run! My favorite is the last section above the take out before the bottom class V. The little cascade into the slide drop! Then the s turn rapids at the tunnel are also alot of fun.

Here is a good picture of that rapid:

Just moved here and decided to get back into boating. I've been off the river for some time now. Sounds like 11 mile is not the place I want to start over at.
