Above New Castle is Meadow (Creek) Lake. There is a rather long (and narrow) spillway off of it that we used to climb up and slide down on our asses. At the bottom there are like 3 or 4 dragon teeth used to divert the water up so as to reduce erosion. At high enough water you could easily kayak down it. I've not been there in about 12 years so it could be different.

someone will get a full loop off of that in a play boat and it will be one of the coolest clips of all time!!

Giant Loop or Rock Boof?

Cooler than the rock boof on Yule Creek:

I didn't think about it, but Yule Creek is just like a giant spill way.. just way more gnarly.

What the hell did that guy hit in that first fall? Yule is on my list. My face is healed and my knee is almost there. Time to get out and break something else!
