Check out some pictures from this weekend's Cheoah River release! A group of NOC guides began their extensive training on this extreme river in far western North Carolina. The limited water releases on this river means training starts early, no matter the weather. Their instructors are veteran NOC guides who have been working this river since releases began back in 2005.
Getting ready to hit a big wave.
The guides get feedback from instructor Will Norris.
Running the big one, Bear Creek Falls.
The next Cheoah release weekend is April 4-5.
