Another Trip on the Raven's Fork but a little different.



So here is where we went. We set shuttle at Emanuel's which is up the Ravens really close to where the dotted line crosses the Raven's Fork and then drove around and up the Straight Fork. We hiked our boats up and over Hyatt Ridge and down into the Raven's Fork drainage. The Hyatt Ridge trail is just off the tip of my finger in the picture and you can see it going up and over to Raven's. We gained around 1400 feet of elevation in 2 miles and then dropped almost 700 ft. Then once on the river its 1300 feet of elevation loss down to Emanuel's house over about 3 miles I think. By doing the hike over the ridge we think we gained more than a mile of more good fun whitewater above the normal put-in at Lord of the Rings. The first 2 miles of the hike were up hill but nothing horribly steep. However the word relentless was used a couple times.

Lots more photos at Shaneslogic.
later

Looks sick ,glad you guys are finally getting some rain down there after last year. Can you run that top section at normal levels or does the water need to be a bit higher?

No you can run that section with pretty much the same water levels it seems to me. In the morning when we checked it was 10" and when we finished it was 8". It was a little low up top but still awesome.
