cleaning west fork in the evening

anybody up for helping run through WFCC & get whatever dropped from the winter out of there before it starts running?

I'm up for any evening.

Our crew spent 4 hours yesterday cleaning I-40. It's good to go now.

Go to Avalanche cut that beast. The entrance and first turn of Z Gorge need some love as well. Then it will be "pretty" clean.

Heading back one night this week but not sure when.

Post back with what you get out.

Comparing Turkey Creek to West Fork. I like that one

I'll get in there at least one night, so I guess I'll start on avalanche & go from there.

btw, all you guys that haven't paddled turkey can pipe down!!, it's a better run than plenty of others that I have wasted my time on. (but, no it's not harder than west fork)
