You can get a lot done in just one weekend. When October rains brought river levels up for just a couple of days, a dedicated group of rowdy French-Canadian hucksters gathered to get their shred on. The density of rivers around Québec City, the province’s capital, makes it possible to paddle multiple rivers in a day. The crew rallied throughout the area, paddling big water, steep creeks, and even sneaking in a rarely-run 60-foot waterfall called the SAP Falls. Enjoy this vid of high flows, cold weather, and beautiful fall colors.
