Report

Account Dan walking under the huge pipe at the parking lot/put-in for the Horseshoe Bend run. Dan found another place to put-in instead of Willow Creek. And his seal launch that followed. Evan getting ready in Willow Creek, the put-in for Horseshoe Bend run. Evan pushing his way around a tree in Willow Creek. Dan showing us how to run Big Dog. Followed by Daniel, except for this rock, that just came out of nowhere! An overview video of Class V Rapid: BIG DOG Notice the bad under-cut rocks on river right (bottom of the screne)! This quage is located on river right about 25 yards downstream of where Willow Creek joins the San Joaquin. However, that day the link from Edison said the river level was 2400 cfs, while this quage shows about 1800 cfs ??? The Huge Pipe as seen with Evan paddling by, downstream of the put-in and Willow Creek. Dan running Study Rapid. Dan below a rapid in the Scenic Corridor. Evan in the Scenic Corridor. Below one of the rapids? Maybe Four Holes? Looking upstream at Little Dog, just above Big Dog. The under cut rocks as seen from above at Big Dog Rapid that are on river right. Dan and Evan scouting Big Dog, the big Class V rapid on the run. Evan below one of the drops, fighting his way through the boils and crazy water. A look at Powerhouse Rapid, ran it on river left, it flushed us right out with the current. Dan and Evan fighting their way across the 3600 extra cfs the powerhouse was adding to the river. Lots of crazy currents, strong eddies, and funny boils. At the takeout under the bridge at Kerchoff Reservior at dusk.
