Here we are on the Locksa river. We did section 3 at about 6800 cfs water level. At run off the ruver was 18,000 cfs. IT was FAST! It was POWERFUL. We flipped 3 boats and some crew swam over 6 times. I was under the boat 2 times and frozen only once. Mark and Frank offered to have me finish the run with them...but I was too cold and I was afraid if we went out, I wouldn't have the strength to swim out again. Enjoy the pictures.
WOW! We just returned from the big Idaho trip. We ran the Locksa and Payette Rivers for 5 days. We slammed, bammed, rammed, jammed, crammed, and swam ourselves into rafts, rigging, "duckies", and gained new friends along the way--Hi Frank and Mark! We faced death, then we ate, faced death and ate, faced death and ate...hummm...do we see a pattern here? The water was BIG and it was powerful, but it was great fun.
