Yule creek pictures

By the beginning of last week I got a day off to go kayaking. Called Demshitz crew and the word was a Yule Creek. One of my favourite runs in Colorado so far. Little creek flowing into Crystal creek from the left side has tons of big stuff to do! On the way up we checked the waterlevel and it seemed little low but totally runnable. After hike in and like a mile of warm up rapids we came to horizon line which means two big slides and technical moves coming up!

Great pictures taken by Nicole Mansfield
The wors ones by Jakub from the river...

Scouting the first technical combination

Jared on the perfect line of "Wall Ride"

Entry waterfall and Wall ride slide is the first part of big ones on the Yule. Right after that you get to horizon line which brings a big slide called “Oriental massage”. We got out and scouted. It was little rocky and shallow. Looked good though so we ran it.

On the next day I had to be back in Vail area working hard. Kayaking along with raft trips. So we did easier section of Crystal creek down below and rallied home. It was a great trip and I cant wait for another one like this one.

You better stay fired up for video!
