Everyone's a little nervous. We all portage.

Except Udo, who keeps upright, but barely

in the swirly brown high water

And it gets busy again down below!

Enjoying the eddies we can, when we can

"Ignorance is bliss," they say

Peeling out paddle raft style

Down some measly stuff to Labyrinth

Laurel's Swimming Hole up ahead.

Laurel swims again later

Who's the crab now?

Jungle paddling on the "River of Crabs" rocks!

Or should I say "River of Gigantic Boulders"?

"Enormous Rocks"?

"Mucho Rocks"?

Scouting the upper run on a day off

Subway drop, Class 5+

On the Class 3 lower run: Lava I

Scouting Lava II - the only Class 4 drop on the lower

A good level for a few hits

Taking the last hit
