South Branch of the Middle Fork of the Feather- Trip 1

The South Branch is one of the most beautiful runs I have ever had the privilege to paddle. We dubbed it the "Edge of the World" because this place is the definition of clean steeps. From the take out perched above a 100 footer leading into a 200 footer one can look up and down the gorge and see a good 2000 feet of vertical drop- wow! We camped at this run for a couple of days and repeatedly tapped into its goodness before moving on due to its gnarly 1000 foot hike out, which felt straight up and made that cold beer at the car taste oh so good. So enjoy the photos and expect many more from the 2 month cali trip as I will be updating frequently now that I have returned to the South East.
