Bedrock Creeking in Idaho?

In 1989 Grant Amaral and Tony Brennan completed the first descent of this creek. Clad with neon splashtops and twelve foot kayaks, they slid down this bedrock canyon. This section has only been paddled by a handfull of kayakers since. Storys of manky basalt, hiking and beaver dams has kept the boaters at bay. However, be it shorter boats, more water or just plain desperation I have had excellent experiances on this creek.
After paddling this creek for the 8th time this year I have decided to post some pictures of this litttle treasure.

Typical Slide.

So the name of the creek is THIS CREEK? And it is close to IDAHO?

Hahah, The name of the creek is Elk Creek, and it is near Orifino, within the state of Idaho. It may show up as Elk Creek Falls on some maps

There is way better runs in Idaho with bedrock than Elk Creek but it is a great little run. Good work, only a few have done it...

I live in Idaho and if you have any specifics on those other bedrock runs let me know cause I'm always looking for new places to go
