some upper animas video to keep you going through the winter

Hey all I thought some of you might like to see some video from the upper animas we shot over the last four seasons. Most of these clips are from medium to high flows since the low flow footage isn't as exciting. Some of the interviews with the swimmers are very interesting I think but you get a feel for what the clients think and why I like to guide up there.

Upper Animas Video

I put this together with iMovie HD (the version before apple dumbed it down - don't feel like learning final cut right now).

Good job Dana,

Nice! What rapid is that at 3:30, with the overhead view? The left line looks muy mal!

shane has that embarrassing ass handing on his blog. that was a few years back. maybe i've learned enough since then to try it again (or not try it again)? I wish we had the run on entrance falls on vid cause that was pretty good. Unfortunately Jrad Leon taped over it in the parking lot.

here is the embudo stuff

Embudo Creek Raft Descent

for those of you who care there are some unrafted things in the works for this season which I am not at liberty to discuss yet. stay tuned...

Yeah that is Redwall in Rockwood box. I actually went left once (not on purpose believe me). I thought we would die for sure but we actually made it through fine. I just told everyone to hang on.

Hey Dana,
you should go back over the Animas vid and put some titles on all the rapids. Also, if you run the Budo again this Spring, I want a spot in the raft...
