Patterson...Yea another report from Ryan about Patterson....

This is a good one. Two newbies to the run. One a budding creek boater and the other a world class athlete. They both played it up like champs on the first run. It was low and mellow, but as always.....Fun.

Then Hugh and I ran shuttle.....really we ran. He sucks to run with btw. I thought I was going to puke twice! Anyways while running up the sky uncorked and dumped in excess of an inch of water in about 15 minutes.

DUH - Lap 2 was on tap! We drove up and put on again to a much more fluid river. By the time we got to the inner gorge the waterfall coming in on the right was HUGE and pumping brown doubling the flow at that point. Needless to say the rest of the run was fluffy and fluid. We all had a great second run and I managed to count a few fish after the last rapid! OUCH!
