Continuous is the very description of this run.
start it was
fast class II and some III with lots of willows on the riverbed. This
carried on for a mile or two with some brush fighting, log ducking and
one quick portage. The first horizon line was this little dam that
unfortunately diverted water out of the Old Cow.
The run went downhill after this with a lack of
character, we bashed down rocks and got immensely frustrated.
Thankfully after a mile of complete junk another stream doubled the
flow of water, followed by another small tributary and release from
another hydro project. To our amazement the run just kept going and
going, with a few more log portages and miles of class II-III water
with minimal eddies. Eventually, and gratefully we got to the takeout
and Jon fired up his new shuttle rig.
I won’t be back for this run, and wouldn’t
recommend it to anyone due to the hazard of logs without eddies and
lack of any significant drops. We did find the aforementioned
waterfall, about ¼ mile downstream of the takeout.
