Merced River

A rare experience ... Kevin Swearingen running the spillway below McSwain
Lake.  During work on the dam, one of the gates was left open about four
feet, providing just enough room to easily slip under.  The water going
down the ramp was only a few inches deep, so the hydraulic at the bottom
was easy to negotiate.  Everyone in the group ran this drop many times
before they closed the gate - what a hoot!  - Photo: Dave Gordon
