Intermediate TR

Sunday, a group of us hit the Upper Klickitat (Salmon Hatchery to Leidl Campground) in Washington State for the Intermediate Trip. Final count at the put in was 15 paddlers, a great turn out for this trip and a testament to the hardiness of Pacific Northwest kayakers.

This run is classified as a Class III continuous, but with flows on the low side of good, it was closer to Class II+. That said, it appears that with some more water in this section it would be a whole lot of fun. The weather was relatively cold and there was some fresh snow on the ground, but everyone had a good time and enjoyed the stunning scenary and the 6 bald eagles we followed down river.

Here is a link to some photos taken during the trip, including a couple I took on the way home of the log in Husum...
