Kayaking the Verde River again...

AAAAaaaaahhh, another super-D-duper day kicking it on the Verde River again.

I met up with the Flagstaff River Mafia (until I learn the official handshake and true name of the list, I refer to them as such) for another mild for this child float down the mighty Verde River.

It was nice not doing this solo, and not having to do a self supported shuttle up and down for todays adventure. Actually, I did this same float sans-solo with a couple of these hooligans (Gory-the Bull and SinBAD) last weekend.

These kids from Flag (plus anoth-ah from PHX) sure do provide a cheerful-good company.

Saw an eagle, hooter, and a few deer.

Here is a short video of the gnar (I humbly submit is really aint that gnarly) that was slayed:

Looks like fun! Can't wait till it gets warmer and I still need to get some kayaking lessons before I feel comfortable doing this.

JacQ, Soon the Lower Salt will be up and running, so the stoke is building.

The big group paddles on the Salt are pretty fun and far from terrifying. The section of the Verde in this video isn't any harder than the Salt, other than it gets a little tight in some spots.

BTW, I saw your name on the river clean up the other day. Way to be.
