Glory Hole

You may recall that last year's put-in was nearly ideal. But sometimes the best sections of river are the hardest ones to get to. Like the Piney in Spring of '06 which was 4x4 only...

The steep mud banks at Mr. Buford's farm on the Elk were tough...

But nothing can prepare you for what we'll have to go through to get on the river this time. Launching at the Green River Dam requires first getting our canoes and gear past security and over the razor wire.

A short paddle to the drainhole.

An exciting, 700-foot elevation drop.

Then out the other side, into the spillway, and head on down to Three Hundred Springs for lunch.
