I have to thank Scott for conceiving of and organizing this really cool self-support, overnight kayak trip through Gunny Gorge. In addition to those responsibilities, he also carried all of the group gear and food in his monstrous, 12’ long Dagger Crossover so that we could have a luxurious time in camp!
Although I had done this run about 4 years ago, my only memories were of rain, cold water, shivering, and not being able to wait to get the trip over with. This year’s trip was in stark contrast to that, with beautiful, warm weather spread out over two days, stunning scenery, and lots of playful whitewater. Spending a night on the river slowed down the pace of the trip so that we could soak it all in at a pace that was truly fitting for Labor Day! After such a great experience, I would have to rate Gunny Gorge as one of my all-time river running favorites that I’m sure to do time and time again!
