Day 9: Clear Creek

Cross River Loop

Don from Confluence gave us a call and told us we should check out the Lawson hole before we left Colorado, and Woody and I hadn't really done a ton of playboating while we were out here so we figured, Why Not? While we were at it we added in the class 3-3+ run downstream as well.

Woodys First Cartwheels in a Hole

We played in the hole for a while seeing what the CR would do in a hole for Don and Woody and then worked our way downstream on the Clear Creek run from Lawson hole to the first Idaho Springs exit. Its a little wierd to keep track of where you are on a river by the exit signs on the highway right next to you.

Woody Ducking the Tunnel

The first thing we came to was a small tunnel. We went for it it was actually pretty fun. After that the river turned into very continuous class 3 and 4. It was really fun water but there were some sharp rocks and a few sticky holes that you had to pay attention to.
