April 17, 2016 - Boardman RECONNAISSANCE

Published on 4/17/2016

One of my favorite rivers, doing RECONNAISSANCE from The Forks State Forest Campground to Brown Bridge Landing on the Boardman River. No better way to spend our 2nd summery day this weekend, portaging, bunny hopping over downed trees, and paddling in 70s sunshine with Jocelyn Trepte, Harold & Pam Lassers! Thanks for joining me, Sara Cockrell.

Jocelyn bunny hopping downed tree. When water level drops, will need to be portaged if not cleared yet.
Harold's bunny hop
many trees blocking river downstream from Scheck's Campground so portage necessary
