	Description:  Hurricane Cr. is a good warmup or chaser for Spirits
		Cr. that is located just to the east.  It is also a good
		run to catch in the afternoons after a busy work day.  The
		rapids are nearly continuous class II, and the first one
		is a 3-4 ft. ledge that can be surfed.  There are several good
		surfing opportunities, and the end of the run provides good
		eddies for squirting.  If you're only going one mile, you can
		walk the shuttle in 15 minutes and run the creek again.  Just
		make sure you don't miss the take out; the next one is eight
		miles downstream!
