The mellow paddle down from the bridge to the third canyon gives you a chance to appreciate the beautiful setting of this river which is located in an unusually arid part of Patagonia. The first rapid comes just before you enter the third canyon and is one of those where you just want to stay in the middle…avoiding any of the confusion to your left and right. As you enter the canyon there is a small rapid followed by a big eddy on river left…catch this eddy if you don’t want to get swept into the narrow gap that is usually portaged. The portage isn’t too arduous and sooner than you know it you’re back in the water ready to head downstream.
Thanks for the trip and photos Lee, Rory and Sebastian.
