2nd Day of the Year, BSF

Big South Fork, Canyon Section


The weather looked right. The water looked right. We were off from work, so that was looking right too. Now all we had to do was go, so we did.

On Monday Jan. 2nd 2006 Jay and I headed for the BSF. The weather was having a hard time reaching the predicted 60 degrees and in the canyon things were a little bit colder than up above. The fog was everywhere as well. But all of that just added to the mystic.

The run starts at Maria’s Rock and ends with the O&W Bridge. The rapid highlights are Jake’s Ledge hole and Moon Shot which is right after. I flipped in both of them. The water was freezing. Good times though.

The drive from Frankfort to the Canyon took 3 hours. Driving home took closer to 3 ½ when huge thunderstorms began hitting Kentucky.
