2016 Hfe!... Crystal rapid @38000
- 40000cfs. Just a another family float day! I've been lucky enough now, to see the Colorado from Hance to below Blacktail Canyon and Lava to Diamond Creek at the exceptional flows that the High flow experiments bring! 2 hfe's in 3 years! On this trip I had the pleasure of sharing that experience with my son, @bjorn_searle
and my partner @springbeats and having these moments captured by @danransomphoto ! The looks on their faces after this close call with an attempt of skirting that monster of a wave to line up for and ride the great looking lines and waves through the rock garden, priceless! When trying to thread tight lines like these, it's risky business. The river has a way of surging, boiling and tossing you around like the insignificant toy that you are at these flows.
