My favorite is the Halls of Karma in the New River Gorge.

When it's 95 degrees and the humidity is 99%, there is no better place to be. It goes into the shade in the early afternoon when it gets really hot. The only problem is that coal trains are always going by...

That underwater Karma stuff looks a lot like tripping on a dance for with disco ball reflections swirling around you.

So, I convinced my buddy Josh to come and huck the trestle with me this afternoon, round two baby! We spun,, tried to flip, it was good fun on a 25 footer. He remined me of this shot, which he took on the Feather River. I'm there, if you look for me.



Then, there's this one. It hurt. A lot. Concussion, broken tailbone, and broken sternum.



Viva la hucking!

Visited the Emeralds last week, while house & dog sitting in Truckee. Wow! Fun climbs that get a bit hot by 1, & then the swimming hole , right off the approach road. Good times!

No pic. It is the Nashua River 300 feet from my front door here in Massachusetts. A river with a pretty strong current and running pretty cool despite the hot weather we have had lately. 40 years ago it was unbelievably polluted. Basically an open cesspool. One person can make a difference in this world. In this case it was Marion Stoddart who has received, among a number of other awards, the United Nations Environmental Programme’s Global 500 Award in 1987. The award was for courage and leadership exhibited in cleaning up the Nashua River and providing a blueprint for others across the nation to help them clean up their rivers. Thank you Marion. After all these years I remained awed and inspired by you.
