In November 2000, a group of 7 of us from Whitehorse Canoe Club paddled down the Franklin River in Tasmania.  The trip took 8.5 days, and there were plenty of epic rapids and even more epic portages.  These photos were all taken by Paul Sorrentino and Rod Gifford, so all credit must go to them for the excellent pictures.

The weather was unbelievably kind to us, not a cloud in the sky for the whole trip.   There could have been more water I suppose, but still, the grade IV rapids were excellent .
