We'll PUT IN at Chili Bar, and do the upper and lower runs of the S Fork(21 miles). The Upper Run consists of "Meatgrinder", Racehorse Bend, Maya, and the infamous TROUBLEMAER. The Gorge run picks up at Camp Lotus, It starts with six miles of Class II - III rapids including Current Divider and Highway Rapid. When you see the Lollipop Tree (a tree shaped like a lollipop) for a third time you're about to enter the Gorge. The Gorge starts with Fowler's Rock which is a Class III+ rapid that has great potential to "wrap" or flip a boat. Following Fowler's are Upper Haystack, Lost Hat, Satan's Cesspool (be sure to smile for the cameras again), Scissors, Bouncing Rock, Hospital Bar, and Surprise.The trip ends on Folsom Lake where we will be towed out via waverunners to Salmon Falls bridge. Once the run is complete, we'll carpool back up to Coloma to look at the pics taken by WhiteWater Photography. (text me for pricing)
