Ran the Upper Applegate and then headed over the Carberry Creek. Matt, Skip, and I were in a 10′ Avon raft. Neil Nikirk joined us with his little cat.
Easter Sunday on the Upper Applegate and then Carberry Creek. Here’s the Upper Applegate with my brothers Matt and Skip:
Box Canyon of the Sacramento is a fun run and a quick drive from Ashland, Oregon. We met up with some friends from California (Neil Nikirk and Lacey Anderson + some of their friends) and had a great time on the water. We took out at Sweetbriar, which was new for me and added quite a bit of miles to the run, but mainly just class II.
My brother SKip and I R2’d a little 10′ Avon, which was perfect for flows this day.
Turned out that Big Butte Creek was chock-full of wood so we ended up just running laps on Butte Falls, which was still pretty entertaining. I think Big Butte Creek itself might be worthwhile but the sections we checked out were full of wood. Maybe a big flush with clean it up.
