Back in the fall of 2006 Brandon and I did what was likely the first descent of a fun little micro creek in VA, East Fork of Elk Creek. We did it the morning of the day of our first attempt on Saint Mary's River (an attempt that resulted in being flooded out of the Saint Mary's gorge). With plenty of dry weather lately I finally got around to putting together a little video from this tiny creek.
East Fork of Elk Creek rarely has water, but when it does it is fast and fun despite its lack of more challenging drops. Really it would be a great creek for lower intermediate paddlers to get a taste of non-stop boogie water for 2 miles. The main danger on the East Fork is wood, a badly placed tree could be very bad on this small stream with few eddys.
Until Next Time...
