2006-09-17 Upper Gauley River, WV - White Water Rafting 04

Heading for "Pillow Rock".

 

White Water Rafting on the Upper Gauley River during one of the two month long dam releases of the Summersville Dam. I'm on the back right side of the raft, in front of the guide, with a baseball cap on.

 

This is the first major Class V on the Upper Gauley run called "Insignificant". We were tracking great into this rapid and hit "Pillow Rock" full. Unfortunately, after we dropped in the "toilet bowl" at the base of the rock we dumped most of the paddlers on the left side of the boat and both of our bow paddlers. It made for an interesting run!
