We were fortunate to run the Upper Salt from March 14-17. Just finished editing my video for all of the rapids on the run. Yes, it's long. There are a lot of interesting rapids on the Salt! This was an epic trip, with flows exceeding 2,000 cfs. Made for some easier runs, with the rocks submerged, and some bigger wave trains. Hope you enjoy!
That really was a good video and I really appreciated the soft mellow music. I find that many good videos often are ruined by shitty loud obnoxious music; and yes I know where the mute button is, but having somekind of vocals or subtle background noise really makes for more enjoyable viewing. Boy that upper Salt is definitely a pretty active and lively river. Thanks again for naming all the rapids in your video, good job!!!!
Thanks all. I really enjoyed this trip, and making this video. I've always found it difficult to choose the "right" soundtrack music for one of these, because the music tells much of the story. For this one, the Apache tribal music just seemed right, considering the upper half of the river is borders the White Mountain Apache tribe.
The red boat we were in is a RMR 12'. The little cat seen in the video was maybe 6'-7'. It was a little paddle cat that he rigged with an oar frame. The Hyside seen at the end with the dogs was 14' (I think). And our TL's Maravia Streamtech boat 13'-6".
