2/9/12 Thursday Vacation day to dial in the ReMix79 and check out a little bit of the Profile Trail

Remix79 next to the Hefe Chica

 When I left Glen Alpine the USGS gage was reading 166 cfs. Dave and I met up at 10:30 for a low water run. I think it was the lowest I have run it but still a lot of fun. Not the best flow for a boat like the ReMix 79 but a good level to decide if the ReMix is going to serve me well creeking and it really seems like it is. It was very predictable and paddled easily, no surprises. I cant wait to get it on a some flow!

 We hiked up above the waterfall within view of the river and found these falls

 Back on the Watagua

Dave droppin' it at low water

 I stopped at the Profile Trailhead off of 105 and hiked in for about 1.5 miles just past the Profile campsite and then hiked back out. I cant wait to go back with more daylight.

Feb. 4 Green River Narrows paddle and a hike at Graveyard Fields then some shots of Garden of the Gods

My first time to the Green in a while. The last time I was there I had a swim but managed to redeem myself this time, no issues. It was a good day of paddling the Upper and the Narrows. Then JC and I drove up the  parkway to Graveyard Fields then drove past the Garden of the Gods and back through Canton.
The clouds were low around the mountain on my way down into the Green Cove.
