What an incredible weekend!! I packed the pug and headed north to Carlton. Rosie was a couple of hours behind me. The rivers had gone insane with the huge amount of rain we had just recieved. Everything was running! Rosie and I scouted out the Lower at around 5000cfs. It was pretty impressive! When driving back to the Outpost Aaron called and said he was on his way and lets do the Upper. Ok! It was just us two running it Saturday evening. I have only ran it to about 2500cfs so I really didn't know what to expect with it being 7000cfs. By far the biggest thrill of the weekend was Rescue Rapids! Looking down from Electric Ledge it looked awesome. I wondered what the heck was going on down there! Well I followed Aaron and being Aaron he went for the biggest water he could find! The waves were huge! So much fun! That was some big water for sure! Afterwards Rosie, Aaron and I scouted the Lester at high water. Aaron met up with Mike and Melissa the next morning for his first run of the Lester...he styled it! On to the Knife with the rest of the crew from the cities and Two Harbors. Running the Knife today was Aaron, Art, Bryan, Brian, Bill, Dave, Graeme, and I. The water had dropped quite a bit but it was still runnable. I was so looking forward to running Fish Falls again but as you can see from the photos there was some huge wood in it. I would have liked to have seen what the water looked like at it's highest level. We ran the river down to the bridge and scouted the ledges. There was one log to avoid going into the chute. We all ran it thru and stopped to check the next drop...more wood. Several opted to run it down a bare bones slide and then take the falls and it did work quite well. What an incredible weekend for sure! To top it off I found the most awesome agate on the Knife today! Be sure to check out Bryan's blog as his photographer friend Ole took alot of profesional photos of us and Bryan will be posting them soon! Thanks Ole!
