Powell Mtn: Stony Creek below Chimney Rock Fork.

This is a section of streambed that has quite a bit of bedrock. Probably pretty interesting class 3+ with a few hundred cfs. This is about a half mile below the confluence of Stony Creek and Chimney Rock Fork. The section between Glady Fork and Chimney Rock Fork has similar gradient but alot of wood and an uninteresting features. The section of Stony Creek from Marsh Fork to Glady Fork has the most potential, but is the most remote as well as being prohibitivly narrow. Because the previous pic is wide angle, the gradient is a bit steeper than it appears.
