Outlet Falls, Washington

I had the chance to spend the day watching (and doing) some big waterfall hucking here in southern Washington while on a whirlwind-friend-tour of the Northwest. Big props and thanks to Erik Boomer for firing up the 1st D of Outlet Falls. People have talked about running this beast for years, but a funky watershed and high elevation keep this creek pretty dry for most of the year. Ben Stookesberry (sp?) followed Boomer with a great line, and I decided I had to go for it, too. There was a really big crew of photographers, safety boaters and homies cheering everyone on to victory. It was a great day.

I didn't have my camera on me, but Sam Drevo snapped these shots of me falling into the freeze.

Now I'm off to China with World Class!
