Day one was a great run on the Upper Gauley. It was only my second time in the boat since I dislocated my shoulder and I didn't feel up to doing any play-boating so I took my ReMix and had a blast in it. Good lines just about everywhere and I only flipped at Sweets Falls and got my off-side roll immediately. It felt great to be out there and paddling with a solid crew.
It was a Wesley's first Upper G run so we got out and looked at Pillow Rock and Iron Ring while BB and Mack provided probe/stunt boater entertainment.
Day two Wesley and I hiked from the Rivers camp ground and outfitter shop, under the New River Gorge bridge and finally found the trail that takes you to an overlook I have been wanting to get to for years.
