Big Horn Mountains – Wyoming

Kayaking in Wyoming is relatively unknown compared to paddling in the rest of the U.S. Wyoming contains just .18 percent of the U.S. population with a total of 568,158 residents. The antithesis of Wyoming is California, with 37,691,912 residents containing 11.91 percent of the U.S. population. *2011 U.S. census report

This past weekend I joined a group of paddlers to run some rivers in the Big Horn mountains. The first day I opened up an unrun section on Shell Creek.

 Shell Creek contained great boulder garden rapids and two distinct vertical walled gorges. Chris Johnson dropping in on the first gorge.
After a great day paddling on Shell Creek with friends we headed to Tensleep Creek. The flows were juicy, creating non stop action dropping at 300 feet per mile. Tensleep creek is one of the best creeks in Wyoming and I will go back every year to enjoy the stunning scenery and exciting whitewater. Enjoy the GoPro edit from the day with the gauge at over two feet.
