Spalding Hurst, Kenny, Jay & John Thomas ran the Upper Russell Fork river today in a Shredder and a Duckie. The Shredder proved to be an interesting vessel, though it was surprising how much water sits in the bottom on the boat. The fall colors were beautiful this time of year. The group hiked into El Horrendo to watch the Lord of the Forks race, taking the tressel side down to the river. Now they sitting fireside listening to the locals fire off shotguns. Another great day in Eastern Kentucky.
