Monday, July 26th

Upper Spokane River
Barker to Sullivan
Gordon, Jillian, Megan, Mike Wooten

Slow and boney, but still totally fun. I got stuck on a rock in upper S-turn and again at the top of Flora, but that is to be expected. Fun, technical, easy. Lovely hot weather.

Just a trickle through Split Rock at this level, but Gord and Mike ran it anyway. : )

Monday, July 19th

Wow. Wow. Wow. It's been a loooooong time since we've been on the river. What happened? Well, we got into biking. Some of our favorite boaters left town. We got lazy?

In any case, it felt sooooo good to be back on the river! Sunshine, warm water, no swims, a fun group! We are going to try to keep a standing monday night paddle going the rest of the summer (river willing).

Jilian, Gordon, Megan, Kent, Bettie Ann
Upper Spokane River, 2200 cfs
Barker to Mirabeau

Level is great--Sullivan Hole is in. Best rapids are Lower S-Turn and DeathCoaster (newly-named!). Oh, and "Flora our old friend" of course! : )

Upper Spokane

Curtis, Gordon, Meagan, Drew

6500cfs, Mini Climax looked awesome. Meagan forgot her helmet and Drew ran the stretch without one. Curtis refused to roll. Meagan swam at the take out and gave me the glare of death when I teased her about it. Later we had drinks at her new place.


Mike Wooten, Zack, Sean, Gordon and someone else. Lower Spokane from the Frolf course to Pleese. Unsuccessful in finding Leahs paddle.

65000 cfs, the hole prior to the Bowl and Pitcher was a bit retentive.

Leah and Gordon Lower Spokane.


Leah had a horrible swim near the bowl and pitcher. Almost got eaten by a log jam.

All ended well, except we lost a paddle.

Jillian and Gordon!
There were only about 5 of us in the pool, so there was a lot of space! Jillian worked on her roll, combat rolling, and off-sides (which is still gone at this point). Gordon worked on his cartwheel.

Stopped off at Fish Lake to look at the sparkly stars on the drive home. : )
