Surprisingly, the water level wasn’t too bad, albeit low, it was doable for an exploratory mission. We had very few portages for several miles and the creek just kept going at a decent pace. Once we entered this canyon, we were completely committed to making it out. The rapids were mostly pool and drop class 3 and 4 up to this point, so I don’t have many pics.
We packed up the car and headed back to Ten Sleep for some much needed warmth, food and celebratory drinking.
Here is Tom Sunderland showing the lady bartenders how kayakers party.

All in all, it was a great trip. I will soon return to that creek when it has more water and warmer temps. It’s one of the most amazing canyons I have ever been through and there is only one way to see it.. in a kayak.
