    Planned a trip to go to shoe creek this past sunday but didn't anticipate the amount of rain they have been having. To say the least the water crossings were a lot deeper than normal and we didn't even attempt to try to cross the second one.

    I will get pics up later today or tomorrow but for now here is a link to the video of the first water crossing.

    Holy crap. You're lucky that current didn't take you downstream.

    Edit: Looking forward to seeing the pictures, do you have video of the return water crossing? That was cool.

    Ya, i am not a fan of deep water at all. on the way back i went a lot slower so the water would not come up as far but it was still deep.
