Haven't used this site for TN, ever, but now there are links to walden'sridge website everywhere and they don't go anywhere. What's up with that?

3/19/17 950cfs, CT, Eli, G, Sam and James. We did 2 laps. Perfect level, there were still eddies but the pools had flow and there were some great surf waves. Boys did well in their kayaks, Sam got 3 combat rolls. Both boys got surfed a bit at the bottom of the Grunch but came through upright. 3/20/17 640 cfs, CT, G, Sam and James. Good level, more eddies and less surf waves. Sam surfed at "baby toilet bowl" and did ferries and eddy catching at "toilet bowl"

4/22/15 760 cfs, G and Eli in spanish flys, CT in grabner, and Jared in ducky. Felt like an ideal flow, still had defined features in the rapids and plenty of push through the pools. G flipped on the second ledge of the Grunch and caught every eddy in Lilly rapid. 2 hour river time.

4/6/15, 250 cfs, drizzly skies with highs in the low 60's. G and Eli in spanish flys, and ct in kayak. it was a great time catching eddys, making ferrys and G styled the boof over the Grunch (the pourover about 2/3 the way through the trip). No swims, just smiles.

Caution, there is a tree across the river about 100 yds past the Grunch ledge. The root ball is in the river right line (Bad looking strainer) around the rock and the top is across the left line around the rock.
