Its no secret that the mountain bike trails in and around Hood River are some of the greatest on this side of the country, so we have been taking full advantage of it! The last couple of weeks I have definitely been on my bike more than in my kayak, which is a nice switch-up. Unfortunately, one of our favorite trails, 8-track, is getting logged within the next few days. Not the worst thing in the world, and I guess it will get us out on some different trails, but its a great single track and it will be missed! Here are a few crummy shots from last Sunday-I meant to get some of 8-track, but kinda forgot I had a camera on me.

Last weekend Husum hosted the first annual West Coast Women's WW Festival on the White Salmon hosted by Heather Herbeck and Christina Russell. They had a pretty good turn out and it was fun to watch all of the events take place, with the 8-ball race being the most entertaining. A BBQ Saturday evening was a great excuse to hang out and socialize and was a lot of fun!

My roomate and I decided to hit up the Lochsa for a chnge of pace and to get on some big water with the playboats. This run reminded me a lot of the New River Gorge in WV. The flow was around 12,000 CFS and there were a ton of huge waves to play around in! We met up with a huge crew from Missoula that makes regular trips out here to the Hood and had a blast!
