nice

A couple guys I boat with did the (probable) fist decent of the muddy fork last summer, when the water was super low, this is what they found: http://professorpaddle.com/media/photoview.asp?File_Id=4727
toilet bowl of death. sketchy as shit. almost died. there was a nice 20 and 30 footer upstream that they ran though!

Re: nice

Doesn't even look like the same place! Very scary! Gotta believe though that somebody will/has tried!

Thanks for sharing that photo!

Great Work

I love the composition; framing of the chasm by the foliage really makes for a compelling pic...

I hate to play the Devil's

advocate, but this goes to prove that a stream of awesome water can be just as thrilling as a snow-capped mountain peak.

Brilliant capture, Kathy !!!
