Old School: High water Arkansas river 1993

Some of you vintage guides from the Arkansas river might appreciate a stroll down memory lane. I'll post 1995 high water later... Remember old Sunshine Rock?!?!

That was awesome high water footage from 1993. That was the first year I guided on the Ark. I think I ran the Gorge at least 5 days a week after work for the first month. They closed it to commercial traffic for quite a while do to the high water. We had one trip with 4 or 5 rafts filled with guides from all the companies at around 6k. Big fun. Great memories.

I believe I saw a skinny Chuck in that video.

Yes, I remember the old Sunshine Rock. It had a scary undercut that claimed a clients life in 1992. If I recall, it took 3-days for her to cycle out from under Sunshine Rock.

I thought it shifted in like 93 and then with the 95 highwater, it moved enough to take it out of the equation.

I wrapped on that sucker once or twice and since then, I've felt a kinship with that dang thing.

I heard that it was blasted out by some guys from the Air Force Academy.

If the forecast for snow pack holds this year it will be an epic whitewater season.
Ya'll be extra careful, and have extra fun with it.
