LAST DAY OF THE TOUR--DAY NUMBER 38 OF BEING ON THE ROAD!
MOOSE RIVER, UPSTATE NEW YORK--38 DEGREES AT PUT IN TIME, AND WOULDN'T YOU KNOW IT, OUR DRYSUITS ARE IN STORAGE IN SEATTLE.
Don Beveridge scouting the right line--great clouds behind him.
Don running the right entrance to middle line.
Darcy running the left line shrouded in mist.
We don't know the names of any of the rapids so forgive us. This is Darcy running the next rapid after the big put in slide.
Darcy running a rapid midway between the put in and the dam.
Don taking an alternative line on the same rapid. Nice leaves!
Don--I don't know why I always have to be a dork--Beveridge doing a radical rock wheel on the last rapid above the dam.
Darcy on the falls below the dam.
Same rapid from further downstream.
Don, same falls--lots of spectators at this one.
We didn't take any photos of Crystal. No one else was there and we figured, we'd just run the rapid blue angel style. But we are kicking ourselves now--its a very visually pleasing rapid. Oh well, I guess we'll have to go back next year.
This series of Don on the last falls ain't so bad, and makes up for not having any photos of Crystal.
When Don landed this boof, we officially ended the kayaking portion of our tour.
We did spend the night in Old Forge drinking beer at our booth and chatting about Ecuador with folks, then headed back to Boston early the next day to fly home.
Now, we are back in Colorado getting packed for Ecuador. We leave Monday and can't wait!
Larry is already there getting ready for our first trip which starts November 3rd.
The next time you hear from us, it will be updates from Ecuador.
YEP, from now on only Ecuador kayaking photos on this "Kayak Ecuador" blog spot!
Thanks for reading, and hopefully we'll see you in Ecuador, where you never have to paddle in 38 degree weather!
