Since we camped at Granite Camp, it's only logical that the first rapid we ran was Granite Rapid. This rapid is one of the bigger ones on the river, but is also complicated by not having any clean lines. You basically just point downriver and try to tee up to everything that comes your way and hope for the best.
The river gods were happy with us today and we all had pretty easy lines (maybe it's because of the high water)
After that was my favorite rapid of the whole river: Hermit. Hermit Rapid is just a wavetrain with huge waves. It's like a giant rollercoaster that is just a total blast. I convinced Jess that she should row it, which meant I got to ride in the bow and it was just as much from there as it is on the oars.
After we ran, we tied up as soon as we could because JB wanted to hike back up and take the inflatable kayak down again. And I wanted to get pictures of this.
