So 2007 was a sick year, it started out with early season playboating with occasional runs down barrel springs. Then with CRMS 5 of us flew to the ottawa to watch World Champs/have some chill runs down the other channels, and early morning bussy sessions(freezing). We then came back to the Roaring Fork playholes being at perfect flows. We also rallied the upper Fryingpan a few days, including one where Jake ran without a sprayskirt, and was submerged after each drop. Once school got out, jake, alex and i started our epic crystal adventures with the first being a run down the punchbowls at super high water, then a month or so later, the north fork and punchbowls in one day. After that we were jonsen for some legit playboating, so we went to m-wave(gnar foampile). Then i went to ski camp, got to run the Green Truss Section of the White Salmon. After ski camp, We ran the Upper crystal gorge, and lake creek, both epic trips. As the water dropped, and i was stuck in SAT class, we made occasional trips to m-wave, and during the fall ran barrel springs frequently, and had some sick play sessions in the hole at the bottom. We also made a couple trips over to Gore Canyon, a super fun run.
Here are a few of the best pictures.
