Thinking about a river

Posted by Ken Campbell December 7, 2008 0 Comment 648 views

A couple years back, I sea kayaked the Washington side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca. I split the trip up into four segments, all the way from Port Townsend to Neah Bay. I called it “Washington’s other coast,” and even did a few slide presentations on the route. It’s a beautiful and delicate part of the Pacific Northwest – well worth any paddler’s time.

I’m thinking these days about a different trip. I wonder what a winter paddle down the Chehalis River would be like. Maybe in January. No later than the end of March. Sometime in the winter, when the water is clean and cold, flowing fast and steady. I bet it would be a fascinating trip, by kayak or canoe.

It’s the fourth side of the Olympic peninsula, after all.
