Since the river is my favorite place to be, and I had such an awesome time last year on Hell's Canyon of the Snake River, I could think of no better place to celebrate my birthday.

I have spent a good amount of time this summer getting used to my new NRS cataraft and learning to row.  Launching at Hell's Canyon Dam the morning of my birthday offered the best present ever, the opportunity to step it up and row some harder rapids.  

The warm water and good level provided the perfect training ground.  I was able to row big water class IV rapids for the first time, increasing my confidence.  This was exactly what I needed.  

As an added bonus, the weather was fantastic! Our camps were sandy and beautiful with great beaches to go swimming, and we were even visited by some Bighorn Sheep!

I think it's gonna be a good year!
