Clear Creek

I met up with a group of 9 others in Ashland for the trip down sunday morning, I'd name them all but my brain doesn't store enough memory. When I first looked over the hill at the creek it put a big smile on my face, there's nothing like kayaking on pristine water surrounded by beautiful scenery. I put together a little video I hope you enjoy.

The North Fork of The Cal Salmon

Steve and I met up with Nick,Jim,Laurel and Chris in Ashland for the trip. I usually get nervous to the point of almost puking when doing a new run, my confidence was fairly high and I was comfortable with the crew. We ended up portaging 3 or 4 times due to wood in one channel and a boulder sieve. It was a great long day of boating. The drive was beautiful up and over hiway 3 yes that's how it's spelled. I didn't get any footage of the lower half of the run my battery died. Here's a little video footage I was able to shoot I hope you enjoy!

River Bridge

Steve and I ran river bridge today, we got to the flat water and I remembered that I had left my keys in the put-in vehicle. I asked him if he thought anyone would pick me up while hitchhiking in my dry gear, he said no. Well about a half mile into the walk a nice bend area paddler named Shawn pulled over and gave me a ride. He said the only reason he picked me up was because I was in dry gear, thanks for the ride Shawn and have fun with your new 14' sotar.

Upper Applegate River

I met up with Kipper and Dave for an after work run, I hadn't run the section above the undercut wall portage before. It's just as fun as the lower section and just as continuous to me. We met up with Josh for the lower section and had a good time. I can't say enough about the people I have met kayaking in the valley what a great group of people
