deepsouthpaddler: We put on a few miles above the music school. We can call it the "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" option for Castle Creek. Other than the big Waterfall and the low head dam it is all class III water. However the homes along that stretch are some of the most amazing I have ever seen. I wouldn't do this option everytime I run Castle but it is definitely worth it to do once.
As far as the Upper Frying Pan goes it was way low. The boulder gardens were fun but we could have used 150 - 200 more cfs. However we drove all the way up there and decided to do the run. We had already run Castle and Slaughter earlier in the day.
Did you guys get on Clear Creek of the Ark? It was running about 330cfs and was fantastic!
We also ran Gore Creek and Dowd Shoots this weekend but did not take any pictures... maybe next time.
RealityCheck: Thanks for noticing! I have been making a concerted effort to dress in stylie clothes and put product in my hair every now and again.
