Salmon River (Cal Salmon) - Nordheimer

California-US  

Description

This is one of the best sections of class IV in the world running through a little slice of paradise in the northern California wilderness.  The run is mostly class IV with a couple spicier rapids.  I imagine the difficulty varies greatly with water level.
