Copper Creek

Another workday -- and another lap on Copper Creek. What can I say, it's a great run. We had 830 cfs on the EF Lewis, but Copper wasn't as low as I had feared. The crew for the day: David, Nick, Shaun, Steve and I. It was Shaun's first lap, and Nick's first attempt at the big drops on this run. Weather was nice, pace was mellow, and all had a great time -- even our carnage donors!

Photos are available in the gallery. (coming soon)

Video coming soon -- enjoy the pics!

David runs the seam in the 8-foot drop of Triple Delight.

Nick dissapears into the foam.

That's me, trying the line that worked last time. It works better when there is enough water to get over the ledge!

Low water -- the fold is the only line.

Steve runs the drop with customary aplomb.

Nick lands the 18-foot drop. We ran this drop far left this time, which worked great and offered an amazing auto-boof move.
