Upper North Fork Poudre pics

I know lots of you's wanna get on this run so I thought I'd post up some pics from the weekend. Get it while it's good. Keep an eye out for wood and fences. A couple fences were weighted down in the creek so heads up. Thanks to Funkins for some of the pics! Enjoy



Action after the 10ft'er





Eazy E on the "10 footer"

Thanks to Eric for lettin me be the shuttle bunny!

Swimming with the fishes

As you look at the Pics I recommend you do not take the line of the blue/green boat, unless of course you enjoy swimming with the fishes.

It was a sweet run. Now I need revenge on the drop.

3/3 Flowtorch

Gate was open. Took us 3.5 hrs from put-in to take-out including 3 portages (2 wood, 1 fence) and scouting the falls. Shuttle takes a while. We put on at 1pm and had no trouble with daylight.

Should be more good info coming from today's run...maybe a few less portages if Easy-E has his way with those logs...

Yo guys, went up there and got on it again today. Was that you guys that flew over us? They said they saw you once at Ted's place and then soon after we put on the NF. That was fuckin rad!

We cleaned out 3 of the river wide logs today, EasyE was on a mission yo, keep an eye out for shifters or logs in certain channels though. Did a little fence upkeep too If you know where to go you can do the whole thing without getting out of your boat now. Felt like the flow was up 2 or 3 inches too. Beauty day. No snakes or fat chicks in hip waders either, just hot blonde cowgirls riding horses. Didn't expect that.
