Why Gore at 600 cfs in October is worth it....

1-Fog and beanies at the put in
2-Bald eagles following you down the canyon
3-Fall colors
4-You can run the meat line at Gore and not pee your pants
5-Tunnel is still stout and dishes out
6-You can't sneak toilet bowl
7-Hoodies at the takeout.
8-Snow on the peaks and the anticipation of a big run off next year.
9-There's no Sunday traffic on the way home
10-And of course, nothing else is running.

Seriously, so much fun to be out there with a good crew and paddling. Please add your's to the list.

The No Name boof in the boogie water between Pyrite and Tunnel is still sweet.
Awesome rock-slide-to-boof move in Pyrite.
Kirsch starting to feel like a maze/slalom course.

Gore rapid- unpredictable yet forgiving.
Scissors boof.
Tunnel falls freestyle.
Because it is always better to go kayaking than not to go kayaking.

Ice Cream at Good Times Burger in Silverthorne always taste better after a Gore run

Other than confluence at 3000 cfs, low water gore IS the biggest water I have paddled in Colorado all year.

Love the fall gore trips! Leaves are changing, rapids are fun, takeout beers are cold.

The cold makes the sheep slower and the wool warmer
Turtle still swims

46 boofs per lap...You can keep kayaking until the skiing begins. Best surfing within 1000 miles. 0 rafts. Lower volume creeky fun. Tunnel is still scary.
