>In July this year a crew of friends joined us in Washington for a flurry of boating on some of our favorite runs in the Northwest. Here's round 2 of Leland's update.
Box Drop Down
Continuing downstream we ran through loads of fun sections before reaching the other big one - Paranoia. Paranoia is a stout drop to start with, combining a tricky curling entrance with a boof over a sticky hole. This year there's a log in the right side of the hole, which is where the water pushes. Most of the group opted out due to the wood, but I decided to have a go at it.
Due to the difficulty of getting around in the woods at the rest of the rapids, we got very few photos but lotsa smiles in there! All in all, it was a great Tye run.
We got a couple more fun runs in the area and a few more days with the crew before they had to head home, tired and stoked from a week of Washington creeking. It was great getting to paddle with that crew! Tired from going hard, Andria and I decided to have a few days off before heading to Hood River, where Little White was still running at a great level. That update is coming soon!
