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! : )
