I am really looking forward to another great spring of kayak lessons and raft trips.  Last weekend Northwest River Gudies taught our annual Oregon Whitewater Association Swiftwater Rescue Workshop. We had sunny skies and warm temps, making for the most pleasurable swiftwater rescue class I have taught in the Pacific Northwest.

Now that it is warming up, we’ll have kayak lessons, river classes and rafting trips every weekend through to the fall.  I am really looking forward to our rafting trips to the Sandy River Gorge and beginner kayak classes in the pool and on the Clackamas and Sandy River.

Also, as the summer comes into full effect, the snowed in roads in the upper parts of the Cascades will start to become accessible again.  I am looking forward to many cool trips into the mountains this season, like Upper Yellowjacket Creek(pictured above).
