Credance clearwater sure made a big hit with rollin down the river (Proud Mary). One of my favorite tunes and things to do. I started white water canoeing back at about 10 years of age, and my kids have been rafting with us during the last 20 year of producing Jim Baugh Outrdoors TV.
My son Ben Baugh really has taken a shine to white water, and had to give up a river guide job for a real internship before heading out to Washington State for his masters degree. He is now grabbing every chance he can to learn new tricks and explore the adventure of white water kayaking.
Was not long after Ben got back from our Suzuki West Palm Beach\Key Largo shoot, before he was back in his Kayak heading for the river.
These pictures are of Ben doing a complete roll in class three White water.
These photos are of Cucumber Rapid on the upper section of the Lower Youghiogheny River. This section is called "The Loop" in Ohiopyle State Park, Pennsylvania. It's called the loop because its a big river meander so by the time you're at the take-out, you're still only a short walk back to the put-in, allowing for boaters to take multiple "loops" in a day without having to set shuttle. It's a class III river.
