Memorial Day Holiday: Last Chance for North Fork American River TripPosted May 19, 2008 by Malina
Gather ye rosebuds while ye may……make hay while the sun shines…..or in this case, before the sunshine melts all the snow in the North Fork American watershed!
Since we’ve had all this unseasonably warm weather we think the North Fork is going to have one last weekend with good flows and it’s coming up! This class IV river isn’t dam controlled, so it tends to have a rather short season that is completely dependant on Mother Nature. It’s had a great season so far–we’ve been out there for lots of trips–but it looks like this coming weekend will be it for 2008 and then we’ll pack up our NFA operation for another year. We still have room on our May 24-5 trips, so if you have time off for the Memorial Day holiday weekend, come up and join us for some high adventure North Fork style.
We have a slideshow and a video of the North Fork so you can get a taste of its emerald water and powerful, class IV hydraulics. The images are cool–but reality is better, so dig out your sunscreen and get on board.
