One great thing about my experience on whitewater is that when the Beckley Register-Herald wants to do a story about it, they call me. It makes me feel good.
Opening day of Gauley Season, 2018. I went up to the dam early to get some sunrise photos. It was so foggy that morning, the place where I went to get my sunrise photo, Battle Run Overlook, was way too foggy. I couldn’t see anything.
By the time I drove back to the dam most of the fog had lifted, but there were a few little clouds lingering down in the valley with just enough morning light to give the whole area a nice glow.
Of course the picture they posted on the front page was of a man falling out of the raft because, let’s face it, everyone loves carnage
