Reflections on the Tsangpo

Part 2:  The Big South Fork Gorge of the Cumberland River at 4000 cfs, April 2004

 

Spring had come to the eastern United States in a hurry.  A heavy snowpack stretching into Kentucky and Pennsylvania had vanished in the warm air and recent rains, giving the whitewater community many reasons to go paddling.  It was Thursday evening, the 7th of April, 1994 and nine of us were heading for the Red River Gorge and the Big South Fork Gorge of the Cumberland River.  We had a mixture of skill levels and boats, which included two tandem canoes, two solo canoes, and three kayaks.  We had wanted to go to northern Michigan or Wisconsin, but water levels were low in the north and high in the south.  So off we went.
