With the paddling season winding down in the Rockies, I figure I'll get the word out that Mexican Creek and a few other kick-ass runs are going on in Texas. Click http://philosophy.tamu.edu/~sdaniel/kayak.html
to see a teaser vid of the Texas Whitewater DVD. The second video shows Mexican Creek at 1064.15, about what it is at post time. Pedernales Falls is higher than in the vid, the Blanco Narrows is higher than it is in the last shot of the first vid, and the 30 foot Edge Falls is probably around the level in the vid. Crabapple Creek is a little lower than the low water run of around 150 cfs in the teaser, but with more rain it'll come back. 1,200 is an awesome class IV+ level with a few class V lines. Oh yeah, the ''20 foot waterfall'' on Onion Creek is running as well. The DVD and guidebook are a great resource for paddlers considering traveling to, or through Texas. MC will probably still be going during the Mexico season and would be a good pitstop. Check www.paddletexas.com
for the latest. It's been an unbelievable year.
