Back to BC with Leif and Ryan. The plan was to go to Idaho and paddle the mighty NF Payette however driving all that way when BC was right here and the pixie pool was calling our name seemed foolish. I got the text. Tatlow? My heart started pounding just thinking about it. So we were off again to BC to get another lap on the BOX and to hike up and run Tatlow if we got good reports. Tatlow is a classic BC creek that doesn't get done that often due to water levels and pure accessibility and is a pure class V gem. All the stories about wall drug and the hike in and the first three blind ledges into the 20 footer. We loaded up Ryan's tank crossed the border and made our way to the Ashlu to warm up and talk to the locals and see who had ventured into Tatlow so we could get beta on wood and access issues. the word was good all was clean and the level was perfect. I started getting nervous knowing we were dropping in the next morning and are wavering plans become as solid as granite.
