That bridge crossing looks pretty crazy, anyone take a dive? Is that a drained reservoir? :cry:

I don't know if anyone went into the water, but if you did they had a forest service ranger there to write you a ticket.

rimrock is a resevoir and provides yakima valley with a fair amount of it's water supply. there is a stacked stone damn at the end, kind of cool looking as you don't see too many of them like it.

The first bridge crossing was the worst one as all the mud came off the tires on that bridge. By the end of the Short course race, it must've been 6" thick. If you went off, you would be diving for the bike, as it was deep there. The other 3 bridges were piece of cake.

Good pics Trav!!! You must've raced the long race then to be out there taking pics.

they drain the res. in the fall of the year to make room for the snow melt and rain in the spring. they net all the trout out of the shallow water and truck them around the damn. we kayak the river when they are letting water out and it fills the river below the damn. we put in just below the flumes.
