video clips from Cataract Canyon

If low water levels have got you down, check out the videos at The National Park Service has posted footage of boats running the Big Drops during highwater in 1997 and 2005.

That's awesome! The 2005 clips made it look a lot friendlier than the 1997 clips did. That first big wave/hole (Big Drop 2, Window Wave?) looked like it has some good surfability. It appears that it wouldn't hold you too long (the rafts just kind of slowly rolled over it) in a kayak, but it's kind of hard to tell. Does anyone know anything about this? It might get stickier at lower water; I don't know I've never done Cataract.
