The water itself was amazing, especially for a novice kayaker from Alabama. I encountered over a dozen class III and IV rapids such as the TACO, BURRITO, LUNCH COUNTER, as well as the Champange Hole, which was perpetually emitting thousands of effervescent bubbles! The river offered more than several avenues of attack on each rapid. I must admit getting tossed on 3 occasions, but quickly remounted and finished out the ride without much rock rash.
After shooting a couple of the rapids, I reversed and headed upriver to enjoy surfing a couple of waves. Besides the white water, I also took a trip on several wave trains, one of which lasted about one tenth of a mile.
The water was perfect, the scenery breathtaking, the wildlife abundant, easy put-in/takeout. Best kayaking experience of my life!
