What's in a Name?

In the late 1970s ABCs American Sportsman TV show filmed a river trip into the Cross Mountain canyon on the Yampa River. The first rapid is the Osterizer hole and the film crew got what they were looking for carnage! One of the kayakers got totally worked and had to be airlifted by helicopter to a local hospital. Dont worry, hes fine. Nowadays whenyou mention Cross Mountain around a group of Steamboat local boaters, they just ask When? It has become the classic Class IV/V desert canyon river run.
