Nice Evan, Sweet pics how big are the first two waterfalls (look about 30 ft)?
Any chance these are still going or are they done for the year?

That's totally worthy of a long weekend road trip. Nice write up and pics. Very, very interesting. How much is a day fishing permit from the reservation?

This is such an awesome, inspiring pic that I had to bump it onto this thread:


Nice work, gentlemen.

30 feet sounds about right Tom. Hard to gauge because they both roll of the lip with gradient in front of them. Probably 40 feet of total gradient on both drops.

I don't think this run is still going but it is hard to say how low it could be run. The Winds have real glaciers so the levels stay good for awhile but... we did this one over two full weeks ago. Thought you guys were going to get it but the Box is at least as worthy.

Thanks for the stoke boys and I'll be spending a long weekend up there next year when it's in so we can all get sum.

P.S. El - that is also my favorite pic of the bunch. Pretty scary and awe inspiring eddy to be in. Especially being the first ones to give it a go.

Awesome! Love to see the spirit of exploration and adventure. The drops look fantastic. Inspiring to know that there are still classics out there to be explored.

Love the google earth comments to. Its one of the best river exploration tools there is.

Awesome write-up!!!! Awe-inspiring, jealousy-inspiring, motivational as hell to get in there next year. Some other Jackson boys went Saturday (7/1) and walked out above the big-uns because they felt it had gotten too low. One said the drops down to them were ass-bangers and he felt they had waited too long to go.
