Trip Reports

Oct 19 - Boardman Forks-Brown Bridge Landing

Published on 10/19/2017

Enjoyed another gorgeous fall paddle with friends on the Boardman from The Forks to Brown Bridge Landing. We did a reverse shuttle beforehand, and had a picnic lunch at Scheck's Place Campground. There is more color along the roads than the river. Even the tamaracks only have a hint of yellow. Followed a blue heron dowstream & a few ducks, too.
