Canoeing the White Salmon in Early October

One week after the last run in September, a number of us descended on the White Salmon again. In this video, I label some of the major rapids. And you get to see three runs of Husum, including one by Greg Davenport in his C1. He also demonstrates a roll earlier in the video. Other folks on the trip include: Bill Jordens, Murray Johnson, Chad Price, Kendall Springer, Carl Poston, Eleanore Hunter, Denny Egner, and myself. And by the way, that flip by Chad? I must have had too little faith–he rolled.

September 30th on the White Salmon

A group of nine ran the White Salmon at 1.8 feet on the last day of September. The group included Bets Stover making her first solo run of the middle White Salmon and aceing it (then getting bit at Rattlesnake after the falls on the lower section). Also along for the ride: John Murphy, Kevin Lane, Denny Egner, Kendall Springer, Greg Davenport, John Maroney, Audrey Bergsma and myself. We later ran into Terry Miller and his friend Bucky (short clip of Bucky running Staircase).Also ran into Nick Jacobs paddling a Blast with his fiance Kate. Audz got a clip of me going over Husum and I got one of Greg. Cave Wave was in great form. See it all in 4.5 minutes.
