With the level holding for another weekend, yet another group of LCCC paddlers went to the Sandy Gorge. Level was around 525 to 550 cfs. On this trip: John Maroney, Chad Price, Audrey Bergsma, Greg Davenport, Teresa Gryder, first-time Sandy Gorge paddlers Russ Pascoe and Karl Dinkelspiel, and myself.
Another great day in the Gorge. This time I label the main rapids, get a better angle on Boulder Rapid, and shoot some of the runs on Revenue Bridge Rapid. Joining me on the river are: Greg Davenport, Ted Housen, Chuck Wilkison, John Maroney, Alan Douglass, Audrey Bergsma.
Denny Egner organized a great trip on the Sandy Gorge, a classic Oregon run. LCCC members on the run besides Denny: Coby Muckelroy, Cliff Debride, Robert Frisbee, Konstantin Toskiy, Chad Price, Chuck Wilkison, Bill Blatner, Audrey Bergsma and Mark Scantlebury (seen only running Drain). Level was around 630 cfs. I missed some good stuff. I blew an eddy and didn’t get in the best position to shoot Boulder rapid, but got people coming out of the end of it. Also, my memory card filled up before we got to Revenue rapid, so there’s no footage of that. Guess I’ll have to go back and shoot it all again. Sweet.
A group of 18 LCCC members and friends paddled Packsaddle to Mill City on July 6 under blue skies and warm sun. The main rapids featured are Spencers, Carnivore and Mill City Falls, but there’s lots of other action as well. Special kudos to Jake Springer (white helmet, IK) for his first solo run of Packsaddle.
On July 4th, six of us ran Three Lynx to Carter Bridge at 960cfs. On the trip: Coby Muckelroy, Kevin Lane, John Murphy, Bets Stover, Audrey Bergsma, and Mark Scantlebury. Rapids shown include the one before Powerhouse, Powerhouse, Roaring River, Hole in the Wall and Carter’s.
A group of former and current LCCC members paddled the Clarno to Cottonwood section in June. Level at put-in date was 850 cfs. By the time we took out, it was 650 cfs. On the trip: Mark and Leland Scantlebury, Audrey Bersgma, John Murphy, Bill Jordens, Bri Condon, and Brent and Tyrae Mahan.
