800% Green Photos

Hello ladies and germs...
After a very long, uneventful month of desert style dryness, the skies finally opened up. A couple days went by and Toby Macdermott, Chris Gragtmans, Adam Secrest and I drove to the ravens fork which had unfortunately dropped out really quick. After seeing the low level we decided to go to the horsepasture. After a very fast run on the horsepasture, and a long hike-out I was only half an hour late to work. The next day, Gragglesmoke called me up for some highwater green. We were hoping for maybe 400%-500%. When we got to the take-out we could see pretty quickly that it was way over 500%. We estimated it to be around 800%, and decided to hike in and look at the rapids.
