Sleeping Beauty
New Mexico has been hit by a late Spring cold spell. Lots of new snow in the mountains. All the creeks started dropping, so everybody dusted off their playboats and hit the local feature called "Sleeping Beauty". It is awesome when the flows are 550cfs to 900cfs. This was at about 650cfs. Photos by Atom.... Alan Cammack was tearing it up all day Alan Alan Alan Alan Alan Alan had his baby out on the river bank for the first time. Cool to see the new generation getting an early intro to the kayaking lifestyle.
