We arrived at the put in for the gorge and the Nolichucky river level was 5ft and climbing,our guide Mike decided it was not save to run and planned to run the lower section instead.At first I thought this was not going to be nearly as much fun,having run the lower in a Kayak.What a surprise! It was a blast!we had a great time the waves were huge.
We found out later that one of the other rafting companies decided to go despite the high levels and all 3 rafts turned over
everyone went for a swim, all but 3 paddles were lost and the hapless paddlers had to hike out of the gorge.
Thanks Mike and High Mountain Expeditions for using good judgement and putting safety first.
