It's not the Biasse tea cups is it?
Not quite but I'll give you it! It is the wee creek that joins the Biasse just below the teacups (I think the Biasse up here is called the torrent d'oules or something). It's called the torrent du chichin. There's some steep chossy grade 4/5 in the 300m below an enormous fall leading up to this slide that we didn't run, we just did the big slide as a park and huck. It's really awesome though, if a bit sketchy, 10 footish slot drop with a habit of spinning/backlooping people with an 8 foot long 'pool' before the slide in the photo.

Ah, got confused by your mentioning of the 60 footer and got the streams mixed up. There's a lovely walk from there up to a hidden village that we did a few years ago, using the summer and winter paths. Word to the wise, the winter path is so called because it is usable all year round and doesn't cross a scree slope, this does mean that it had a lot of steps and ladders so maybe not the best when you're with your parents in law.
Here's a pic of just above yours with a fair bit of water in it.

And here's the wezzit:

It looks like either, the Lower Sermenza (Bioccioleto to Balmuccia), or the Lower Mastallone (Bocciolaro to Varallo)?

Nope, looking back, it appears I may have already submitted a different picture of this river, although no one got it at the time..

Dave, I've gone all North America on your ass...lets see you exploit that advantage.
I wouldn't be terribly surprised to find I'm the only Brit who has paddled this multiday run given it's elusive seasonality.
I'll even give you two pics.

"Elusive seasonality" suggests that snowfall is unpredictable even in the mountains. So somewhere warm, like California.

However, since I don't know the names of any rivers in California, that's as far as I can go!

This run starts in a state immediately adjacent to Arizona but finishes 72miles later in a different state. You will also pass this sign whilst running shuttle:

Adrian has it, the Jarbidge-Bruneau combo. A high desert adventure in the middle of absolutely nowhere.

Great river for a canoe provided you catch it after enough rain.

The other one I was thinking of was the River Divie, runs into the Findhorn river right shortly after Randolph's Leap, but thinking about it, maybe not for a canoe?
