The Royal Gorge of the North Fork of The American River hosts some of California's most beautiful and committing waterfalls.
In July of 2011 our group of 12 expert paddlers made a three-day trip through the gorge. Four paddlers (Evan Garcia, Rush Sturges, Dan Simenc, Ryan Lucas) completed "Royal Flushes" by each running all five major drops on the river.
