After I got back from the Canyon the rivers around seattle spiked high with all the rain on snow and we paddled the green pretty hard for a week getting a top flow of 7,000 cfs. High !!! Some big water fun in what is normally a low water fun class III-IV canyon becomes a non stop big water wave train for seven miles. Some women at the take out bridge took these photos so I thought I would share.

 I really wish I had more pics of the green at this level. The river was to high and fast for us to get out and take photos. Plus the ranger was looking for us so we were trying to be stealth and fast. Apparently it's a crime to paddle this river at flood stage. We were confronted at the take out by the ranger giving us the riot act on the river closer and how stupid we were. We didn't get sited and talked our way out of trouble but our stupidity is still undecided.......
