Final Rapid


Account This is a view back up-stream of the final ledge which is just upstream of the bridge marking the take-out. Click "View Full Size" for better detail. I didn't have the time (or energy) to paddle back up and do a panoramic like the others. This one can be tricky to inexperienced boaters. The only way to get through without scraping is to go for the tongue on the river right (left when looking at the picture) which threatens to throw you up against a rather sizable rock. You essentially have to pillow off the rock on your right side and slide down the chute. I've never capsized on it, but the possibility is definitely there.
