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

 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.
