Very cool!

I think the BBcode doesn't like the exclamation point in the link. It doesn't work for me either.
I like microtones in microdoses.

Looks like fun, especially on a warm day. I wonder what the flow looks like in a normal or strong rain year...

Does anybody ever do that going up the canyon?

LMAO Taco....

I doubt it zip, i would only go down that thing....the walls are so steep (300+) in some sections, that it would be more of a "rim....how do you spell rimeneering? ).....anyway, the fun would be gone.

Could someone explain why the tram will be closed for the next week? I know there's a serious winter storm, but why would 50-60 mph winds cause it to close for a week? Isn't wind like that pretty common? Or am I missing something.
