Trip Reports

September 15 Boardman, BBL to Beitner

Cheryl Morris  | Published on 9/15/2021

Bluebird sky and sunshine greeted us Wednesday on the Boardman.  Put-in at Brown Bridge & paddled to Beitner Road.   A wonderful trip of meeting people, trading stories, swimming ;-).  Water was brisk, wetsuit pants, boots & gloves came in handy.  Note to self to not close eyes and nap on river...surprise branches can attack!!

Special thanks to Lois for leading & setting up, John for loaning me bow & stern ropes, Wayne for helping me flip kayak & dump water, and everyone for paddling together!

People: Lois & John, Mike & Jocelyn, Dean & Diane, Marlene, Wayne, Steve A, Cheryl.
