Duckies invade Vallecito

or... When guides get bored.

3 paddlers, 5 swims, 1 wrap, 1 lost paddle, 1 banged knee, 10 miles of hiking, 20 lb duckies, 8 hours.

We hiked in to just above the second bridge... maybe 6 miles.

The first two are the first falls below the bridge which we named Sweet Child of Mine.

The next two pics are a gorge we called Boy Gorge. we all swam the rapid above the log rapid. Then we ran the log rapid I call it Pee Wees Playhouse (blind corner class IV). The next rapid in the gorge is a solid IV and we had another swim. Once out of the gorge is a lot of class III down to the first bridge where I wrapped my duck. At this point we ran out of time and hiked out but there is more nice class III and IV above the V+ section.

Yeah that is a serious booty beer. I didn't realize that a ducky swim called for such harsh retribution
