Elk Falls, NC – Southern Stout!

Elk Falls (or Big Falls) has been on the radar for me since I was 16 years old and still just getting into kayaking. A friend had found pictures on American Whitewater and suggested we drive up from Atlanta to run it. I said we should probably work on our rolls first. But, 6 years and a lot of kayaking later, levels looked about right so I rallied a crew and headed over after class. I fired it up first followed closely by Mac McGee ( in a pirouette and hand paddles!)
