On Saturday, July 18, Luke Liebsch, Macy Burnham, Chris Tulley and I completed what may be the longest contiguous descent of river in Kings watershed history, linking runs on the Middle Kings, Garlic Falls, and the Banzai Run in a hitherto unprecedented act of river-running. Though the additional 10 miles of the class 2-3 Banzai Run only added 300 vertical feet to the trip, they rounded out 50 miles of whitewater good times and crossed off a page on the guide-book check-off. Whitewater!
The Habitat 80 tracks nice and speedy through flat water, like this cheat-line one can take by crossing Saddlerock Lake on the hike in.
I call this rapid "the data archive," because it's so backed up. Macy launching into the bottom half.
If Tulley were a marine mammal, he'd be a gnar-whale.
Getting ready to launch off some smooth Ponderosa bark.
Luke smears that rock like he's waging an underhanded political campaign.
Afternoon T-storm advisory for the greater bottom 9 area. Tulley in the shadow of gloom.
