Boxelder Creek afterwork run to Wild Turkey

Boxelder Creek is like a women. Some pleasure and whole lot of pain. 100 min is the lowest for enjoyment, if only paddling to wild turkey. The more water the more padded and of coarse more pushy. 150 min is doable for the rest of the canyon including hairy beaver, possibly loaf and of coarse electric slide and dungball. take a look into the nasty before commiting to far.

Fremont Canyon, Wyo

Fremont Canyon could be considered the Black Canyon or Pandoras Box of Wyoming if it had some water. Flows yearround 73-75 cfs from Pathfinder Dam to Alcova reservoir due to water being taken underground for electricity generation. Due to seives and not enough water flow the gorged out canyon is beautiful yet hardly called whitewater. the upper canyon before the gorged out section has the John Fremont boof( named after the original 1st D by John Fremont and crew way back when in the date of wood army boats.) Could be combined in a double day with Mircle Mile, south of Pathfinder Reservoir and putins at Cortez dam.

Casper Whitewater Park, North Platte Release 4K

Twice a year the North Platte River outside Casper Wyo has flucuating release, from Grey Reef and Alcova, that reach the Casper Whitewater park from 3:00 till dark. The flows flucuate between a min of 500 cfs and a max of 4000 cfs which is a good start to a great time. The Casper park is a big water park most of the features are good at between 2k and excellent at 5k. Here's a couple of pics of the 4k from this last week, only a couple good days due to continual snowfall. Total of four features, all have some sort of play at this level., whether it be down river, green waves, holes, wave holes, mini barrels.

Luke- running Macho Munchies(3rd feature)

At about 4500cfs Macho Munchies turns into a kickass wave. You can actually surf the green wave at this level, beautiful wave. Blunts and spins are also possible. The hole will hold and is partial to keeping boats in for long rides.
