Slaughterhouse is an awesome run! Add Castle Creek (watch for wood) for some additional excitement. Hit upper fryingpan too!

Directions to Rocky Mountain High Rock

The location where the photo was shot for the John Denver Rocky Mountain High album is along the Rio Granda trail in Aspen Colorado. Here are the directions.

From Aspen go east on Main street to Hwy 82W.
Turn right onto Cemetary Lane. If you get to the round about you have gone too far go all the way around and back towards town.
Cemetary Lane changes to Mc Lain Flat Rd.
Turn left into the parking lot for the Rio Grande trail and Park
There is a porta potty there so if you need to go, go now. there is nothing more on the trail.
Continue on the trail to the right. See how many cairns ( Cairn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) you can find on the trail and dont forget to make your own.
Eventually you will come to a pond on the right hand side of the trail. Go about half the distance of the pond and then turn around and look at the river... You will know the rock when you see it I promise. If you climb down to the river please be very careful as it can be very wet and slippery. Make sure someone stays up on the trail to take your picture.

omg omg omg, I friggin love Slaugherhouse. The smooth rounded splattilicious boulders! The epic surfiness! The magic tea-cups feel of the eddys! The falls! At medium, go left young man, and boof! Lower water happy landings down the notch to boaters left of Jonny D! Horror stories about being caught behind the curtain if you go too far right and botch the boof.

We better get some snow so I can get my 2012 slaughterfix!

Wow, Slaughterhouse looks different from that angle.
Saw it a bunch this past summer. It seemed to stay in the
wonderful range of 1k to 2k for weeks.

Any guesses as to the level in the photo?

"Rocky Mountain High" was the song I played at my first guitar recital. RIP John Boy.
