Ohiopyle Falls Race and Freestyle '07

I was fortunate to be in this part of the country for the annual Falls Day on the Yough. I learned to kayak here, and I used to spend my summers working for Riversport before I moved to the Northwest. Ohiopyle Falls is actually illegal to run on every other dayof the year, but the park rangers open it up to the masses for this great event. It was fun to catch up with friends and to actually run the falls in the daylight...
I took home the gold in the freestyle event in Max Blackburn's pink Hurricane. That boat is probably over 10 years old, and it is still one of the best designs on the water.
