Uh oh. Great. Now the cat's out of the bag about excruciating miles of flatwater paddling before and after the rapids on Westwater! Oh dear gawd, you were supposed to keep it a secret and tell your unsuspecting paddling buddies about how great Westwater is, then bail and go run Gore at the last minute and let them get the initiation of the long, boring, horrible, tiring, tedious death slog into and out of WW.
Rich - thanks for posting the photos. When you remember that rapids never look nearly as serious on camera as they do in real life, that's some mean looking stuff!
Give me a shout next time you're through Denver,
