Four paddlers (Ben Stookesberry, Chris Korbulic, Taylor Robertson, and Josh Bechtel) recently made the third ever descent of a whitewater run called Yellow Creek. It is the first time anyone has run this stretch of river in nine years, and the results are in the video below. Neither I, nor Canoe & Kayak, where I discovered this video, know where Yellow Creek is but it looks both incredibly fun and incredibly terrifying at the same time. The water is wild and there are rocks and logs everywhere, including a gigantic one right at the start when the paddlers drop a large waterfall. This is a beautiful place to say the least, and I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did.
