ps. nice list. bet your next one will be equally awesome, PNW style!
True, it was 2011, but also just about one year ago... How about I'll remove that one and add Nanty Cascades!

Clearwater is killer! Can't wait to get back in there! Did you run Cranberry in TX? It's supposed to be the best run in TX, but guarded by an AK-47 and only flows every other year. Needless to say I missed it.

Aw, a positive upbeat thread. How cute.

Well, I also didn't want to let a bad snow year keep me down. I got more days this year on the water than I ever have in my boating career. 2011 seemed to be all about doing lots of the same stuff at big flows and less driving. This year was about chasing everything peaking, which usually meant a low-med flow and the rest of the time surviving on Bailey runs at fun flows and of course late season Gore. Still managed some fun on Escalante, Embudo, Homestake/Gilman, just about everything on the Poudre: Upper Poudre runs, 1/2 the Big South, Narrows, Stevens down, some low water Clear Creek, South Boulder Creek, low water RG on Ark, fun surfing on flooded Confluence effluent, awesome surfing at Durango PP. Even learned how to stick some loops in the October hole. Can't really complain.

New for me this year:

- Upper/Middle/Lower Poudre Narrows (low hanging fruit)
- Upper South Boulder Creek
- Vallecito
- West Fork of the San Juan
- 1st Gorge Lime Creek

Out of State:
- Upper and Lower Mill Creek (Cali) at great flows
- NF Yuba (Wild Plum)
- Selway
- SF Clearwater (Golden Canyon)
- Icicle Creek
- Ingall Creek
- Little Wanatchee
- Foss
- Rapid River
- Upper Tye
- Skykomish River (NF through main)
- S.F. Snoqualmie (Fall in the Wall)

First time for USB and the Embudo for me. Also ran 119 to Golden for the first time, though most of that section was familiar. Also ran the bridge rapid on LSB for the first time.

Beyond that it was a lot of the usuals; Escalante, Gore, Bailey, Big Thompson, Black Rock.

This was the least I've paddled in over 10 years. Got in my boat a grand total of 5 times with no new runs (also the first time in probably 10 years)..but got some decent quality:


wow - that looks bad compared to y'alls lists
