Upper Cherry Get it while its Good to Go
JJ and I just kicked off the season with a one day car to car, literally we walked 1,500ft and the extra 4 miles from lake back to the trailhead. Flows were low but we went in pre season with so much snow we got lost for 2 hours wandering around trying to find Styx pass in the snow. Finally just walked straight down to the river and put on a few slides below the start. A little bit scary knowing if it heats up you are sitting on a big time bomb of water but it stayed cool. First time wearing a full drysuit in California. Since the full loop exceeds 26 miles we call it the UCCIADM UPPER CHERRY CREEK IN A DAY MARATHON. (SICKERBIRD?) Started at 5:30am first light finally hit river before noon?? (no watch) then down to lake by 5:00 hike all the way back to car by 7:30pm. Opened Tecate 7:31 CHEERS!!
