Once, while paddling a stretch of the Colorado River called Westwater, I got caught in a notorious eddy known as "The Room of Doom" with a dead cow. We swirled around together in that vortex for over an hour while I paddled for all I was worth to break through the eddy line. After about twelve attempts I finally escaped, totally exhausted. That poor cow is probably still trapped in there, going 'round and 'round with his feet in the air...They say "eddy is your friend", but not if he won't let you go.
