Big Hungry & the Summer 200

Its been 90 degrees (balls hot) lately here in the southeast, with many of the rivers about to dry up completely. Even the tubing is getting manky. So off to the green narrows last Sunday for a low summer 100 release. Once at the put-in we were told of 4 inches of rain the night before. I thought that explains the small creeks in peoples yards with grass all laid down in the flow. It was looking like I was going to get to pop my Green 2-hunge cherry, with a big hungry entrance. Not many photos cause things were moving a little fast, but here a few:Joe B going somewhat left.Top hole of Zwicks

And then the camera died cause I hadn't been creeking in months, and the battery was not charged. Sorry, will make up for it next time.

Summer Photo Drop...

We recently returned from the Cispus River and will post some photos soon. The Cispus River is a late season Columbia Gorge classic. The Cispus River has been isolated this summer due to a massive landslide last winter that completly covered the road from Hood River. Last weekend a group discovered an ATV trail that bypasses the landslide, reducing the drive by about two hours each way. Props to Andy Maiser for locating the turn off. And now to the Summer Photo Drop.... Here are a few pictures from the past month on the Little White Salmon, WA. All photos contributed by Keel Brightman and Ryan Scott.

Old News.....New Edit

This picture is from one of the first documented expeditions into the Salmon River Gorge. this Picture was taken on the ridge below Frustration Falls in 1963. I recently found this picture and it seemd appropriate to introduce a new edit with an old picture.

So, out with the old and in with the new. Chris Korbulic has created a new edit from a trip down the Salmon River Gorge from earlier this summer. you can take a look Chris's new edit HERE
