Tim Gavin and I ran this back in 1997, it was an amazing trip, high water had caused numerous
landslides, the first cascade was run that day, June 17 , totally by accident as there were no
eddies above it, Tim was jammed up in the only eddy on river left. We have some cool photos from
that day Amazing run!
