West Virginia take 2

This is what it's all about. Just like the real parking lot, this is the place to shoot the breeze and talk trash. Just keep it clean!

West Virginia take 2

Postby bdk » Thu Jul 16, 2015 3:45 pm

Headed up the other week to West Virginia for the annual New River Extravaganza. Ended up raining a good bit and we were able to paddle some stuff that usually does not run this time of the year.

First up was the Lower Big Sandy.

Headed over to Maryland that afternoon to finish off the day with a run down the Top Yough.

Finally we made it over to the New for a freedom run down the gorge.
