5/31/12 First Float on Glacier Creek!

I floated Glacier Creek for the first time. I was a little nervous not having floated it before. I've heard there is a class III wave in the run below the tram, but I didn't see anything above class II. Overall it was a pretty exciting float for some people that haven't seen lots of whitewater yet. There was one significant sweeper we portaged, although it has since been moved or floated away. We played it pretty safe and scouted a few times trying to spot possible wood in the creek. I ended up going around the bigger stuff only to get stuck on rocks. At the current water level (0.68 kcfs/26.39 ft) it's best to hit all the waves. We went from the tram to the Glacier Highway bridge in Girdwood which took about an hour.
