Toxaway may just be the best stretch of whitewater in the South East, with huge gradient, overly channelized clean granite, and a ton of rapids- big, small, and gigantic. Will Pruett and myself made the trip from Chatt in his vegetable oil burning Mercedes Benz, which broke down on us more than a handful of times. Upon driving through the night we met Dustin Marquart at the takeout. With the uber solid group stoked on the sunshine, sweet water level(-2), and safety we made our way through the gorge with evident charge. Clean lines were shared by all and our trio was stoked to be at the parking lot before night fall. Standout rapids of the day were- Energizer, Land Bridge, Winter Green, and all the smooth boogy. 2009 just keeps giving aqua splendor. Life is great and so are waterfalls.
