Trip Reports

August 4 Boardman - Forks to Brown Bridge Landing

Published on 8/4/2018

This was a graduation present for Aili and me, and we had a fantastic time! We’re both beginners, but with a lesson before starting our trip we were able to make it through with no issues! The weather was very pleasant, and we enjoyed viewing the scenery while chatting with our fellow paddlers.   Maggie Jenkins - heading to MSU in the fall.
