Nothing stops us from rafting the Tuolumne! New footage:Posted July 18, 2011 by Roxanne
Ahh July… it’s sunny and the whitewater is fabulous. Pretty darn close to feeling like heaven. Nothing’s going to ruin my fun. Not even a rockslide.
Yes, this year our beloved Tuolumne River, had a hiccup. To clarify: the river is wonderful, but Lumsden Rd, the access for shuttles into the Tuolumne Canyon, (a Class IV adventure in itself, haha) had a tough time keeping it together. Literally, it fell apart. Heavy snow caused slides and cracks to form, which closed the road until September.
But we’re troopers, right? Who needs a road when there’s a side trail? Yep, we’re hiking in! It’s a nice little hike, and allows us to experience the canyon in a new way. Why am I telling you this? Well, footage from a recent trip features the hike and we want you to be informed.
So here you go — a new video from our 1-Day Tuolumne trip on June 19, 2011. The river was running about 11,000 CFS that day! Enjoy![youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upeIazXKyBQ[/youtube] For best quality, view in HD
