Gary E's Favorite in-state:

1. Grape Creek
2. Fraser

I'd have to throw in Bald Rock Canyon on the Middle Feather in CA, and the Santa Maria in Mexico as two world class runs I've been lucky enough to experience in a boat. The Selway also ranks up there as a raft-supported wilderness run.

I have not made it up to the Rouge. Although it's on my list, I haven't been in the area when it's been running. Now I definitely have to go, though.

Hey Cutch, when you did the embudo at 3.7 this spring was it only the 2nd time you had been down it? If it was that was an entirely different river than your first trip! That was the one good part of my season, getting on the embudo with some water in it.

Since all of the responses so far are Class IV and V, I'll throw in perspective from a Class III/IV boater:

In Colorado:

The Numbers on the Ark
Upper and Lower Mish on the Poudre
Foxton on the North Fork of the South Platte

Yeah Brian, that was my second time at 3.7. The year before we paddled it at about 2.6, and my wrist was still recovering from being broken, so I couldn't even get my skirt on by myself. Needless to say it was an entirely different experience at 3.7. I didn't recognize all that much...
