I think Crystal Mill is kind of tricky - probably not the best beginner waterfall although it is a class 3 approach and class 2 run out. Go for it!?
NFC - best 8 foot boof you could ask for to learn on! Icing and Cake? Maybe a little beyond beginner waterfall terrain.

Whiteline on the upper narrows of the poudre at super low flow might fit your description. Its runnable down to .5 or maybe even lower.

Thanks for all the replies everyone. I will keep an eye out for all of these places in the spring when they start flowing again and I'll also see if I can't get out to a couple of the spots you've recommended to hit at low flow.

Thanx Count and Cu k girl.Count I wasn't sure if it was Ojo Frio or Ojo Caliente.There is a Caliente near Copan,Honduras that is actual hot water whitewater, has steam coming off of it, and the picture i saw it looked pretty tough.

Flaco ,You don't pass thru Oaxaca it is all Veracruz and Tobasco and a little in Chiapas.So. Veracruz could be sketchy at night. The problems in Chiapas are west of Palenque /Agua Azul but not by much.Driving that far would eat up some time.
Upr. Filo was no good huh,I always wanted to do the ruins run,heard it was 3+ ish,thought the Upr. was a little harder run for the next day with something about an adventurous trip to the put in.

Ojo Frio and Dumont???

Why on earth did I drive 30 hours when I've got my own little O.F. right here in CO?
