  Hinton to Meadow Creek
  Posted by: Big_D on Aug-16-10 2:27 PM (EST)

Both in West Virginia. We took out above Brooks Falls and put back in below Sandstone Falls. A member of our party was under the weather, and though he'd normally be able to run Brooks Falls, we decided not to push it for his safety and our convenience of not having to do a body recovery of a friend. It is illegal to run Sandstone Falls and only one, maybe two, of us had the skills to do it anyway (not me).

It's class 2 water at most. Nothing intense or overly challenging, but enough squirrelly current to keep me awake, and on one rapid the standing waves were large enough that I got slapped in the chest as my 'yak submarined under the next one. A lot of fun.
