Crystal is prime! Been out on it a few times, I go to about 2000 with a paddle raft. Good stuff!
Yea he ran Avalanche Campground to the Crystal. Said it was rowdy and woody. Scary enough he wouldn't do it again. Couple of trees he went under, close to the surface but not under water. Wants to clean out the wood. Maybe a late fall hike down the riverbed?
