The Elbow River is medium sized river that flows out of the foothills just south of Calgary, it contains a few good sections including one short class 4/5 run. There are three challenging drops which can all be run as many times as you want, making it a great run to get warmed up for the season. I had a 7 day break between exams and need to get outside and do something other than studying, the only option was the Elbow at a below optimal level, much below.

It was my first time out with the GoPro in a kayak so I'm hoping my videos, later in the year will start looking a little better. All in all in was fun to get out on the water, it's getting me excited for this year.
