At the right flow, this stretch of Falling Water Creek is one of Arkansas's jewel runs. Probably does not get the good press it deserves.

Looks like you guys caught it just about right.

When Falling water is running good, Richland is probably cooking and most elect to run Upper Richland or maybe even Lower Richland.

Long time ago, like you guys on the drive in several of us took off from the main group and ran Falling Water, took a lot of ribbing from the main group.

We were camped there at the upper Cossatot take out camp site, knew we had Sunday there for the Upper Richland and did the Falling Water run anyway.

I remember being really pleased with that surfing wave just below the low water bridge, waterfalls and several really nice rapids at that level.

Good job on the video and thanks for sharing. I bet it was a bit nippy that day, but the action probably warmed you guys up.

This is the highest I've paddled falling water and I actually like it a little lower. Some of the features get washed out and makes it less technical but it does make for a 'big water' run with big waves, holes and lots of funny water. I'm not getting on Richland at almost 8 ft! There is great surfing below the bridge. You can see the two large waves in the video and I wish I would have at least tried to surf em...foam piles were a good 4-4.5ft? Good times. Waterfalls are awesome on this run...every video I've done of this run has most of them. Going to get out and look at the big one on river left next time.

Seth, I love your graphics and how you synch the music to the action. And of course the paddling was great!

Seth, not one to look a gift horse in the mouth (whatever that means), did you get any footage from our Lower Richland float on 01.11.14? I had such a good time and it was great to hang out with you and Scott.

Yeah I did Curtis, I've been running a little behind on videos. I'll try and throw together a short one here before too long.

Nice perspective, Perspective7! Loved all the waterfalls and first person action.

Thanks for sharing.
