I bet you were giving your rain gear a good work out. Did you get any pictures of the Tellico River? Baby Falls maybe?

Here's my before of "The Horns of God" rapid on the Nantahala Cascades.


And after

Headed back to Tellico tonight. I'll post some pics of the river and the big kayak drop tomorrow. Wonder if we'll see any body actually in the water. There's always one.

Most folks think whitewater boating season is from memorial day to labor day but for most hard core boaters(Kayaks and open Canoes) it's just the opposite. Much more opportunities this time of year. The leaves, grass and ground don't soak up as much rain water and sometimes the results are epic creeking on rarely run tribs!
