Scouting Scott's Run

After all the water dried up post Thanksgiving (freaking figures)all that was left as usual was a run down the Potomac. With the level at 5 feet not a whole lot was going on. Scott and i set shuttle at Carderock, drove up and ran the gorge, playing at any little wave we could find along the way. It was a gorgeous warm day at least so we were having a good time.

To top it off we decided to go take a look at Scott's Run, a small fairly steep urban creek that comes into the Potomac across from Carderock. Scott had gotten a chance to run it recently after a heavy rain.

We climbed up at the final drop and walked a short way up the gorge. Unfortunatley there was not enough water that day but it did look like it would be fun. The final 15 foot drop lands in the Potomac but requires the level to be fairly high (around 7 feet?) as low water results in a rocky landing.

Hopefully next time it has water we'll get a chance to catch it.

New Photo Gallery

Hey all,
So i've decided that i need more space and easier upload capabilities to post all my boating (and non-boating) photos. So i have started a Smugmug page. Fear not though faithfull followers the blog will continue. You will still get to read about all my adventures and see great photos here.

The Smugmug page will allow you to view more complete photo galleries from each trip and let you download high res images. This will not only get the photos to you faster but will save me having to email tons of individual files out to people. You'll also get to see photos from my non- boating life (umm... yeah there occasionally is such a thing!).

I will be providing links from my blog posts to associated smugmug galleries (and vice versa).

So please add this link to your bookmarks and check both for exciting new updates.

I am gradually working on uploading older photos and will have everthing up as soon as i can.

Take care


PS. If anyone else has a Smugmug page let me know so i can add you to my links.
