After a few runs where I really felt like I spent a lot of time thinking, the idea of going into South Silver sounded great. This run is like an amusement park with lots of clean drops and awesome slides. This run definitely falls into Ben Jackson's PGA category: PGA stands for Post Granite Awesomeness.
This run contains great rapids including Autobahn, Skyscraper and Plastic Surgery.
We drove from Coloma to find the take-out which happened to be the easiest part of our day. We checked the flows at the take-out and it looked like we had a good medium flow. From here we took a while to find the put in, a few wrong turns saw us back at main road. We found a group of kayakers also looking for the put in, they managed to point us in the right direction. We put on the river at 4.30pm, just as well it's a quick run.
Shannon, Matt and myself boogied down stream, making quick time.
Such a fun run. Enjoy the photos...
