Sometimes the best thing to do after a long winter in Northwest Colorado is get out of town before the runoff picks up; and head to Cali. This was my fourth spring trip to Cali and I would have to say it was the best. We had perfect weather and almost ideal flows everywhere we went. We started the trip off in Kernville California with a few laps down Brush, and Dry Meadow Creek. The weather was perfect but for some strange reason the flows would not come up on Brush. Rumors were circulating that an illegal agricultural operation was pulling a bunch of water from the creek up stream.
Next stop Hospital Rock on the Kaweah River. I have been wanting to paddle this section of river for years. Clean mank-free granite boating…awesome!

After a great day in Sequoia we decided to head for the Middle Tule. This run is loaded with super fun granite slides and waterfalls…highly recommended!
