California Trip Report '07
Summer '07 is game-time for researching the River Gypsies' Guide - our first stop is California to check out some Sierra classics. Here's the report:
We decided to forego the other 10-12 footers onto rocks, and made our way down to a section where the slide was bumpy but good to go for several hundred yards.
The end of the section is a series of really big fast slides stacked back to back right above a 20 footer. This is the main attraction that we had come for. After carrying our boats for miles and baking in the granite oven for hours, we were ready to get wet one more time and then look for some shade.
From here it was just a fun filled 1.75 hours of hiking up granite slabs and uneven boulder piles with our boats on our backs to get back to the van. We were happy to have completed our mission at last, but also quite sore.
Having completed our Dinkey mission, we headed north for more granite bedrock at South Silver Creek.
