Best 3 runs in the state?

There hasn't been enough controversy on this site in a while, so I decided while procrastinating from homework that I would stir some up and maybe risk coming off as more of a douche than Kanye West.
1) Valliceto: who can argue with this one
2) Black Canyon: This is going to piss a some people off but it is THE only overnighter in colorado and thus the best training for California, has more whitewater than any run in the state, its in a sick as gorge, it runs more days than any (tied with gore?) and the hard work keeps the pussy gapers away.

3) Big South: Would be #2 if it was longer

Alright Fort Collins Dads let me have it.

Black Canyon

[email protected] the Black Canyon below the portage has been run many times. The last time it was run was by Chuck Kern. That's why no one does it any more. Sorry for the bummer FYI.

If I could have 3 runs year round right outside my door at prime flows....

1) big south - all around classic
2) obj - primo waterfalls and slides
3) ssv - high speed mank action

I'd also need about 47 creekboats a year if they ran all year.
