I really enjoy this run and come the end of September, I'll make daily internet checks to see if
the flow has come into runnable range. I wish it was a little closer to my house though. A friend
of mine made a little video of a trip we did that shows all the bigger drops. Best Clear Creek
video I've seen. vimeo.com/15347356 very fun intro to creeking run and you can paddle it from late
Sept to April
