More Cali Fun
A little delayed I know, but one Grand Canyon trip later here are some photo's of my last week in California. In the Kaweah drainage I finally found the California sunshine I had heard so much about. We took advantage of the beautiful weather and headed straight to the Chuck Kern slide and Hospital Rock run.

Erik Johnson on the same.

The next day was high water on the East Fork. That's me enjoying Nate Garcia's dirty foot-rot post smack-down Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures of the run..

Predictably, the Kaweah blew sky-high so we began searching for anything that might be at a feasible level. After a day of refreshing Colorado-style super mank on the South Tuolumne we got word that the illusive Big Kimshew creek was in! Another burly California drive put us near the put in of one of the most amazing day runs I have ever done. Above is Evan Garcia in Big Kimshew Falls.

One more run of the South Branch at slightly higher water finished of my California trip and I headed back to work.

Back to the Grand Canyon. Double Rainbow at Three Springs.

Back in Colorado hoping the water levels continue to cooperate until I can make it out to Cali again. Everyone who let me tag along and showed me around California. Hope to see you all again soon.
