    Ride Report - Sedona (Slim/HT/Horse/Arrow/Hogs/Llama)

    A ride report from our first day with the crew in Sedona. Not a bad way to spend time while waiting to get on The Grand Canyon.

    Nice trip report in your blog. Did you end up getting to launch? The park must have been doing double or triple launches once it re-opened. How did you like the 5 to 10,000 cfs flows? No big deal for a kayaker but there's a few runs that get downright challenging for a boat at 5 or 6,000 cfs.

    Nice pics, that is a super fun loop! You guys had perfect trail conditions with the rain. BTW, HT stands for Harry Templeton.

    Exactly right, a hairy templeton is that special spot in between two other special spots. Hairy Templeton. The in between special spot.

    Thanks!
    Yeah we did get to launch, on the third day after our scheduled one. It literally came down to hours, as that was the last day they would have let us; I never thought I'd be thanking Jan Brewer... =)

    As for flow, we had fluctuations of between 5,500 and 10,000 cfs, which was plenty fun but more would have been better, of course. In a kayaking it all goes fine, and in a raft the only ones that got trickier at that flow were Hance and Horn (as I understood it). If you're curious, here is some POV footage I put together of the run:
