Inspired by the recent 127-foot record kayak drop, the National Geographic Adventure Blog brings us another great top ten list today, this time giving us the 10 best waterfall kayaking runs in the U.S.
The list has some excellent, and big, drops from all over the country, ranging from North Carolina to California. There’s even one on the Potomac in Washington D.C. Best of all, each of the runs in the top is accompanied by an excellent video to truly demonstrate why it belongs on the list. For example, check out the clip below of a crazy drop over the Mesa Falls, on the Henry’s Fork portion of the Snake River in Idaho, which comes in at #5 on the list. And when you’re done here, head over to check out the rest of the drops.
