Wondering if anyone has the ability to create a map of boulder drop and label the features? Thinking similar to the map they sell of Blossom Bar, but anything to reference the good, bad, and ugly would be great! I would like to post such map on AW and WKC.

Thanks!
Renee

I thought the Bennett book had a diagram drawn by Shane Turnbull (Chinook rafting)... or maybe it was in Doug North's book?

I made up a cool map. It's in my gallery on here, but I'm not sure how to post it. Can someone help me out?! Cheers!

I'll have to find my Bennett's book. Although, I was looking for something current.

Megan, glad you were able to get those pics posted to AW. Thank you. I'd like to post to WKC website if that's okay with you and Tyson?

I think there is a money making opportunity here. Post cards of a map, or drone image, or whatever, of BD, for sale at local businesses. They make it work on the Rogue for Blossom Bar and the Sky has its share of commercial biz. Just an idea.

One question, though. Who named that hole? Are you sure that's the best name?

I have no idea where the hole name came from. The first time I heard of anything like it in Boulder was this summer from Trevor B. Someone on his crew recirc'd there.
Then again after this year's Christmas paddle. Then references to your epic in 2007.
I've got permission from Tyson to use the photo. I'll have to get JPs permission to use his likeness also. I'd love some help posting it here so I can verify again that it's correct, I can easily edit it to add or delete things. I didn't label the main exit, which I was thinking of adding.

We could rename it "Bear Hug" since that's what Rob had to do to you... Plus it's fierce!

Bear Hug, I like that! Bear Hug is my vote. Let's get the community's consensus, and relabel if folks are in agreement! Nice, Megan. Thank you!

Rapids are cool. Maps of rapids are not.
