Splitrock Creek and Devil's Gulch
On Friday, I drove down to Garretson to camp at the Splitrock City Park. I did this so that I could join other SDCA members on an early morning Skunk Creek cruise. While I was there I decided to paddle around in Splitrock Creek and Devil's Gulch. Not too much to report. I did about 2.5 miles.
One negative about my night here: The some of the graduating class from the local high school also used the park for a party. Needless to say, my sleep was interrupted.
