We ran the N. Fork of the Blackwater the day before, and got on the Big Sandy that Sunday. Unfortunately I forgot to erase the memory card in my Go Pro, so I didn't get any North Fork footage. Luckily, I came back the next weekend and got to film some.

The day was mostly cloudy so there wasn't too much snowmelt, but the level was around 6.3'.
