This blog is dedicated to explorations of spirit, life, adventure, and people. I hope that it encompasses much more than the actions of people, but rather creates a more complete picture of what it means to be an athlete and a person in the outdoor community.

Upper Indian

Upper Indian is a Quincy local class V classic. It is rarely talked about. It is one mile and drops something in the range of 200-300 feet. It is all runnable to varying degrees, that being said it is a rare day when you run the whole thing through, if you do you can do this run in less than 30 minutes, but it is a lot.

Then on to one of my favorite boofs ever: Slack jawed yokel. Kurt styling it.
Continuing downstream leads to the steeps with more quality rapids: Nuclear Meltdown

The lineup after the wall is Big Girl Panties, Colorado Classic, the Chief, then Monkey Boof.

Then the exit of the main gorge. This photo doesn't do it great justice, but it is a face full of fun: Kumbayardsale.
The final rapid: Indian falls, a 15 foot waterfall. Cody enjoying it in multiple ways.

That is an awesome 1 mile of whitewater. We are supremely lucky to have such a run out there for us.

Cheers to local classics.
