A couple of weekends ago Greg Nicoll took this video of a run we did on the Skykomish from Cable Drop to Split Rock when the level was round 950 cfs. On the second lap of Boulder Drop he had the camera turned backward so it shows a different angle. And, as usual for any kayaking video, [...]
Greg Nicoll did two go-rounds of the White Salmon River the other weekend, here are the pics of him kayaking the Husum Falls section. Just a note on Husum Falls – word on the eddyline is that recent flooding moved things around so the line has changed slightly and it’s a bit stickier. Overall, maybe [...]
Today we had an awesome run on the Skykomish at around 3500 cfs, starting from somewhere below Sunset Falls (Powerline?) all the way down to Big Eddy. For me this was kind of a step up to do Class III/III+ at a somewhat pushy level – naturally I flipped a few times but rolled back [...]

Greg Nicoll and Jeromy Adams led a kayaking trip on the Headworks section of the Green River on April 25 2009 and a great time was had by all. (Let me just say that Greg nailed the trip leader requirements before we even started by bringing doughnuts to the put-in.) Here are some photos taken [...]
