Upper Animas video - June 21, 2008

Great to see everyone on the Upper Animas. Here is a short video highlighting some of the rapids. One cat ran the meat of No Name and one kayaker ran a river right route. If you are from the Vail group I hope you're all well and sorry we didn't connect in Durango.

Nice vid. Looks like a good flow and a beautiful day.

Mack: what's up with walking No Name and the Box?

Thanks for the offer, but Vail crew got out a bit late. All ended up fine. Gear was recovered and good times resumed. Dinner, campin and lots of beer drinking became priority. Awesome video. It is much appreciated.

I am considering doing this run in the next couple of weeks or so. I hear the Upper Animas is some serious business, one of the most difficult runs in the state. But I hear it is a blast. What does everyone else think?

No Name version 2.0 is beefy. You might give er but 19 out of 20 kayakers there on Saturday walked.

The box looked really good but not good enough to solo sans scout.

Call me about your weekend plans.

Vail crew- Glad that all of you latte sipping yuppies got your gear back

Chicky- the Upper A is not that hard unless you flip your raft. It just moves really fast and it might take miles to pick up a yardsale.
