Bombs Away, Upper and Lower Salmon are the rapids featured in this film. They are the less frequented rapids of the Upper Kern in Southern California.
This was shot on the Upper Kern River during high water of the 2011 season. Its been really great here this season for everyone. The runs in the video are Chamise Gorge, the Thunder Run and Thunderbird.
Welcome to the Forks of the Kern. This is a premier commercial wilderness multi-day trip. At 4,000 cfs it is a roller coaster ride from heaven, granting a big water feel. Class V scenery and Rapids make this run a must. This trip took us just under 4 hours to paddle 17 miles.
Upper Brush Creek, Class V
This run is very full on due to wood. Really great opportunity for drops, if you into earning them.
