I think we want to make a day of it, so we may do Salida East to Valley Bridge, and therefore bypass Rincon all together. Any info on Tincup rapid other than the left wavetrain that lmyers mentioned?
Are people running shuttle often to Valley? I was going to bike it back up, as we don't have 2 vehicles to complete the shuttle and as a gal I am not comfortable hitch hiking on the road--but if I could get a ride back from someone doing the same stretch that could be a quicker option.
