A little 801 Love
For the past few weeks there has been a rare abundance of boating in Utah. The Weber river rose up past flood levels, peaking at about 4800 cfs. For those who don't know - that's a ton of water going through the 'mighty weber'. Between and around the electric cow fences and low bridges, the Weber has a few good runs including some class II - IV. At these high levels especially, a wave on the Weber gets to be really good and we call it Riverdale wave. It's pretty easy to find all you have to do is take the 'Riverdale Rd' off I-15 and find your way East to a little parking lot behind the trailor park. Here are some pictures from my times at the wave, including friends, my parents, and fellow CKS squad members Haley Mills and Mike Tavares,who stopped on their way to Reno:

The next time you'll hear from me, I'll be in Reno, Nevada for the annual River Festival! Wish me luck!
