boofyak, and anyone that wants to know.

Set the odometer at the bridge leaving marble and heading towards the quarry. Drive exactly 1.0miles and park. Hike towards the river to scout the bottom 4. Decide if you want to drop. If you do, drive exactly .3 miles further, park on the side of the road, and walk down the steep slope at a slight upstream angle. Put-in at the top of a 9' Cauldron drop. If you see a left side driveway to the bible camp, you are .1 miles past the put-in. The landowners have given us the okay on the put-in I just described. They do not want paddlers putting in at the camp, so obey.

Takeout is the same as Crystal Gorge.

The rapids are packed into one mile or less, and I've heard the total drop of the run is over 600'. Kinda makes OBJ look like a warmup run.

For reference, the Quarry is about 4 miles up the road.

i would say the bottom 1/4 mile drops at least 200ft. if i were to guess. we ran in 98 or 99 with no beta. that day is still one of the best i ever had in a creekboat. i ran way right at the 1st of the big 4, where it was a steep slide almost instead of a falls. it was fairly low, but i did not hit anything.

Any word on Yule flows for this w/e? Todd, Great pics as usual, how's the health?

Nice work.

That 80 foot slide is out of control.

Low, but probably still doable. Might help to control the speed on some of the big ones, but the upper drops (most not shown) will be a bit scrapy. The rain helped us out for sure...

Word! Awesome shots!

But do you have any pics of Tunnel or high water Dowd for those of us who aren't stuck in the early 90's? I just can't let it go...

Gettin hitched in the summer time. . . not the gettin' hitched but the timing.
