The weather changed so quickly here in Utah that I did not even have the time to blog about it. Even though I have already had some great ski days this season, I want to share some of the adventures that were had by the Rapid Progression crew this summer.
We were able to catch the Final release of the Black Canyon of the Bear river. American whitewater has done a great job working with the local dam operators in Grace Idaho to get regular releases for the past few years. Unfortunately, this could have been the last year. Keep your fingers crossed that we will get a few more years of releases.
The run is a great basalt gorge in the potato fields of southern Idaho. It consists of mostly class 4 rapids and one class 5 named boo boo. When it is flowing, Paddlers come from all over the west to get in on the action.
Check out the video of 2 of the larger rapids, Grace Falls and Boo Boo.
