We’ve done the Ruby Horsthief stretch before, and we’ll do it again for sure… It’s an easy class II float that is great for the kids, and our current skill set.
This trip was a bit different as we booked it at high flow without really realizing it. This made us a bit nervous about handling stronger currents and eddies, but in the end it turned out fine, even with a few mishaps (Like missing the eddy to our campsite at Black Rocks).
The usual crew was along – The DeFords, Maile and Seneca, Brad, Tai, and Aspen – and Sam, Michelle and Soph too!
This was a bit of a milestone trip for us – the maiden voyage of our new yellow boat.
