Such an amazing place to be i cant wait to explore more sections of the tule river.. after many more fun slides and an awesome 12 footer we were at the take out.
All of us were sad to be off of the run.. its an amazing place with very few portages!

The next day we awoke and hung around camp for a while.. after a nice relaxing morning we set back out on the river.. the first major rapid we came to is a mile long class 5 called west wall. I decided it was best to scout the biggest part witch was about half way through the rapid.. while we were standing on the rock spencer noticed a boat floating down the rapid. when we relized it was my boat we ran down to the bottom of the rapid and swam acoss luckly catching my boat.. with full intent of loosing my paddle i sat on the shore and looked back across for where i jumped in at and evan leaned down to grab something when he put it his arm in the air i saw my paddle! after these events we got ourselves collected and got back to the run. we found ourselves at carson falls before we knew it.. after a short scout we decided to run the sneek that kept us away form running the 5 foot drop that led into a nasty body surf hole called the "thing" carson was the last big rapid on the run when we made it to the bridge that maked the take out we were all smiles and laughs about the amazing place we had just passed through. the forks is one of the most amzing places i have ever been!!
