An amazing month in eastern Siberia kayaking wild rivers and drinking heaps of vodka!!!
The fall rains have kept my local gem of a run, The Middle Box to Baker's Box section of the Animas, flowing in late summer. It's an incredibly beautiful section of river that few get to see.
Kayaking in the Northwest is all about crystal clear water and big drops. On this recent mission we where able to run several great drops with great people! After weeks of great freestyle paddling in Colorado and Idaho demshitz where all fired up to get back into our creek boats. Everyone was ready to charge! Our first stop was the Leavenworth area where we tackled Exit rapid at good flow. Pretty stout rapid, but all went well expect for Bren blowing his skirt and swimming for a quarter mile. Next on the hit list was Log Choke...
The Little White holds some of the most pristine class V whitewater in the Northwest, possibly the entire West Coast, its rapids known worldwide: Gettin' Busy, Boulder Sluice, Island, Sacriledge, Double Drop, Enchanted Forest, S-Turn, Backender, Bowies, Wishbone, Horseshoe, Stovepipe, Spirit.
