Nope, not on the Inn either. This drop is just above the normally rafted section.

Maybe the Ötz rather than the Inn?

Afraid not. It's not in Austria or Switzerland although it is fairly close to the latter.

Nope not in Italy. It's in the (newish) South Alps guide book and is my local run.

Yep! It's the penultimate drop on the upper section (with more water than summer flows). It's a nice run although it's a shame it has a number of siphons on it due to the rock type.

"my local run" was a bit of a big clue! Although "South Alps" almost put me off, as it's not what I think of as South.

So where's this?

The Feather is 150miles North of you (now)...I'm seeing a trend with you and navigation. Also the wrong continent for this river.

haha. I'm fairly sure I know this one :-)
Still pretty niche!

Does it start off as a dry riverbed with quite an impressive spring by any chance?

Looks a bit like the Pyrenees, but I'm guessing it's probably not?

Well please forgive me... as a general rule if it's not covered in snow and ice for 8 months a year... anywhere just falls into a general category of "daan saarf"

Indeed Poke! Quite unusual! Would be fun to try to get on the normally dry upper upper after serious wet weather

Looks like Bill beat me to it :-)

Agree about the upper section. The evening after we paddled this lower section on a "couples trip", we camped at the takeout and the heavens opened. The next day we had planned to be a rest day, so got up fairly late (it was still raining) and did some touristy stuff. One of those things was visiting some viewpoint over the upper gorges. Looking down from above it looked like they were very much on by that point. I was kicking myself. It may have been a blessing in disguise though, as it looked full on from 100+m up, so it may well have been on the high side of good.

Tim,

Thats your Dad Nic up front in his yellow Mamba, followed bywhat looks like you and then Amie in her red Nomad and your Mum Julia coming up at the rear.

Initially I thought it might be somewhere in the Grand Canyon with the colour of the canyon walls and the water, but its looks too small and I don't think you and Amie went on that trip with them?

So not too sure now.

Peter

Well I haven't a clue but had already discounted the Colorado, if I were guessing I'd suggest somewhere in Iran but I have no idea on a river.

Pete has the right country (Morocco). Only got one of the four people right though ;-)

Was only really after the right country for this one, bit too niche for anyone to get the river, though it's the Dades River if anyone is interested. Amazing destination for a grade 3/4 Easter trip: http://www.pyranha.com/blog/?p=5273

Over to you Pete.
