Trip Report - Mother Lode Falls
The team has been taking advantage of all of this year's "opportunistic flows" on the South Fork of the American River Below Slab Creek Dam. Deep in the lower gorge is a massive rapid known as Mother Lode Falls. Team paddler Daniel Jenkins has been grabbing the bull by the horns to charge down this beast at several different flows. Not everything goes at all these flows. He took on descents on 600, 1000, and 1500 CFS. Check out this Marquee drop and make sure to follow all of our adventures on this amazing section of river.
