Lower South Fork Rio Grande
Not a bad little run especially if you put in just above the Columbine Rest Stop at the take-out for V section. You can start off with some IV bang before it goes scenic III-. Half way down the right braid bypasses the obvious river wide log left. As the New testament mentions the Fun Valley RV park is a great take-out 4.5 miles away. Just talk to Keith at the entrance and he will most likely oblige your request for a take-out. With no campers there I parked at north end by final ledge drop. With campers he said preferable pull out would be the sandy beach on south side. He is cool and plays a mean mandolin. What the good book didn't mention (probably because it references FR380 bridge 1.7 miles up river), is a fun and sporty III rapid in between. It sort of sneaks up subtle which is why 'Surprise' or 'Quick Shot' seems appropriate. Is there a name already for it?
Pics are IV put-in and final V section above.
