SOLV Earth Day Cleanup

This was a fun day of cleaning up the banks and islands of the Lower Sandy River.  We ran through the small riffles and every so often pulled off to pick up trash, metal, even large tires!  What a great event organized by SOLV, a volunteer opportunity for Oregonians.  We paddled in a group further planned out by the LCCC.  We had a nice and warm Spring day and saw such wildlife as an Otter, Steelhead, and Osprey.

Grande Rhonde River

This past weekend a few of us paddled this one of a kind river from Minam to the Powattka Bridge.  We spent two nights out and three days canoeing to reach the take out after 40 miles.  What a great way to start spring!  No matter that we awoke to frosty gunwales, the sun came out later!
