The Seven Teacups

seven-teacups

Rarely is a route named in such a fashion but this one in particular deserves such an odd title.  The Seven Teacups are a section of Dry Meadow Creek that is popular amongst both canyoneers and kayakers.  In higher flows this is an exciting whitewater route with several waterfalls in quick succession.  During early summer and beyond, the flow of this canyon tapers off enough to warrant safe descent.  Even under these conditions it is a flowing canyon with all the hazards of exposure, slippery rocks, currents and swift water.  Below the seven teacups there are two other great drops before the main confluence with the Kern River.
