Trip Report: American (South Fork "Gorge") - February 26, 2005

Run: Greenwood to Salmon Falls
Difficulty: III to III+
Flow: 1500 cfs

Headed out for the second run of the 2005 season from Greenwood Creek through the Gorge to the Salmon Falls take-out. Despite the threat of rain the following day, the weather was great with sun for almost the entire run. The flow was somewhere around 1500cfs or so. As a result some of the more fun & familiar features had washed out and there were some new surprises just underneath the surface. No major incidents, the river was pretty quiet. The final stretch past Hospital Bar through "Surprise" was actually a lot of fun - perhaps since the lake was low.

I'd like to get up there when it's flowing about 2,500, but regardless there's never a bad day on the river.
