Toxic Waters Weekend

A lot of friends from all over came into town for Nate's kayak video premiere that took place on Saturday night! It was a couple days of great flows on the Little White and the Truss and clear blue bird weather. Here are a few shots that were taken on the Truss, sorry, no pics from the Little White, I forgot my camera.

Hagen Gorge

I've been wanting to get on Hagen pretty much since I moved out here and was just waiting for the right time to do it. Its hard to catch this gem at a good flow, but going on some good beta, myself, Gynner, Andy Round, Jarred Jackman and Nate headed out! There was a ton of snow on the mile or so hike in and we were all pretty happy to get to the get-in. We all ran everything and had great lines throughout and got off the river with huge grins! To top it off, its only about a 45 minute drive from Hood River!

Crazy Snow Storm

Last weekend Hood River got hit with an unusual snow fall! It dumped about 18 inches in a 10 hour span of time. I ended up not being able to drive out of town and ad to walk home, and a few others were in the same boat! Chains would have come in handy for sure. That sunday, Jason and I went kayaking down the white salmon to get some exercise in and trekked in waist deep snow to the put-in, it was by far the most snow I've ever been paddling in!
