Spring has hit

Trip Reports

Spring is in the air. On Saturday march 10th, I met seven Colorado boaters for a run on the Upper Box in New Mexico. It was flowing around 500 cfs and it felt like Spring, the wind was blowing and we were all coming off the couch. Time to shake the rust. It was a great warm up run for start of the season. I took a few shots for ya all. Sorry about the haphazard quality but all I had was my point and shoot and it was cold.
The crew was Evan, Mike, Pete, Leigf?, Trevor, Junior, Randy and myself.

It was a awesome day. I will post a review of the Mega Rocker soon.
PS, the hike out is way better than the paddle out.
Adios, Atom…

    Gotta love the Upper Box, ran it last November – And I loved the paddle out. We had 4 Bald Eagles flying above us and the sun getting under the clouds after it snowed on us earlier in the day. It was nice to just get in a paddling rhythm and enjoy the beautiful canyon scenery after running the rapids.
