However, due to some improper care of said glasses by a kayaker who will remain nameless, the glasses did not make it to camp 2 in mint condition. They were full of scratches; and even though the warning label advises against using scratched glasses, we all had to take a few peaks at the unique astronomical event. Even though we were too far south to actually see the “Ring of Fire” we did get to see about a 5/8 eclipse and it was pretty darn cool.
I’m not going to do a blow by blow description of this run because there is already a great one on Darin’s site. But the photos are in order of the drops so you can a good idea of things from that. Our photos aren’t quite as pretty as Darin’s…we are still working on our photography skills
But I will tell you that Don was super stoked to be carrying the camera! Especially on the long portages.
While you are enjoying our fine photos, I’ll take a minute to remind you to sign up for SWA’s summer gear giveaway. We’ve only just begun to give out sweet kayaking gear so you still have the rest of the summer ahead of you to win great stuff!
Day 3, after a quick portage around the “Untouchables Gorge” Macy, David and Don fired up Bear Trap. Here’s Macy boofing the crux hole just before charging to the right side of the Bear Trap feature itself.
Macy, thinking that he didn’t really feel like revisiting his old rodeo days decided not to try to top Don’s ride
Thanks to our awesome crew for such a great trip. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of dudes to paddle with.
