This and That

This weekend was a great intro to Spring for New Mexico. Had fun play boating, dirt biking, low water creeking and lots of tall tales by the campfire with good friends. Gotta love the start of a new season.

    This is the new rockfall on the lower canyon, the shot does not do it justice. It is worse than it looks. Be heads up when running the lower canyon. It will be interesting to see what happens at high flows.

    Frenchy on steroids. He cracked his boat on the Embudo and air was filling up his drytop from the crack in the hull.

    Brawts and cheese and beer and a campfire with friends is all ya need after a day of h2o. Thanks to Frenchy and Badkins for coming south and keeping me company. Adios, Atom...
