Elkhorn Creek


Today Jay and I took John Thomas out for his first kayaking experience. He said it was a good one. John completed the alpha and the Omega, swimming once a the very beginning, just getting used to the water and wet exits, then swimming again at the very end, getting used to bumping off of rocks.

For the low water level it was surprisingly playful out there. There was a cool side surfing wave at the old bridge rapid. I caught the big wave at the big drop thingy and the right side of Angioplasty was pretty good. The rock wall has been built up there and provides better eddy service.

It was another great day on the water, wish you could have been there!
