American Whitewater - 4. El Vado Lake to Abiquiu Reservoir, Rio Chama New Mexico, US

its all class II with 2x (III-)...... its a great trip. can do a bike shuttle if all else fails, but theres usually traffic on the road. car camping is great, even righ by the put-in. its at a great level right now it looks like. what rapids there are sort of wash out above 1000, so 700 is great.. just look out for skull bridge rapid (II+) gauging station rapid (III-ish ) and screaming left (III-ish) there is like 2-3 shallow rapids near the top and mostly floaty. pretty much all the good rapids come after the bridge. great trip for famly and kids and dogs and beer. and the water is always reallly cold. so a hypo kit/layers for swimming kids is a must.
have fun!
