Report

Account This is the last and most impressive rapid in a gorge below the highway but above the girl scout camp. Scout on river right and also portage on right with some difficulty. Bill Murphy paddling a drop that marks the entrance to the second Gorge which eventually leads to Cherry Bomb Falls and Max Headroom. <p> Note the staff gauge in the background. The gauge is no longer operational, but historical records exist as Dinkey Creek at Dinkey Meadow. Cherry Bomb Falls is not very big by todays standards, but it seemed intimidating at the time of its naming. Mike Latendresse paddles down to the top of the falls. There is a small horizon line visible directly ahead of Mike, but the falls itself is just past and very hard see in this photo <p> One can scout or portage high on river left. The descent back to the river is down dirty gully. Rock climbers can also scout on river right. Cherry Bomb Falls is not very big by todays standards, but it seemed intimidating at the time of its naming. A group of kayakers on Dinkey Creek, just below the bridge at Dinkey Campgrounds.
