The Upper and Narrows of the Green then onto Kitsuma for a quick 10 mile loop

Judd, aka J-Dub and I decided since neither of us had our Green River keys, we would put in on the Upper and run it to get a nice warm up before hitting the Narrows. The Upper section was beautiful. We only saw one group of two people. A nice rain storm came through and actually had the water brown for a little ways but it cleared up and turned out to be a beautiful day.Steven caught up to us at Chief. It was good to run into him out there.

Steven and I ran this years ago when the water was spilling over the top of the dam up rivier and this was all a long slide:
After the Green run, J-Dub and I stopped for a bite to eat in Hendersonville then I headed onto Ridgecrest for some evening mountain biking.
