Big Air Ramp Building Weekend.

A group of people from Professor Paddle went out to the Wenatchee for the weekend, to make preparations for the annual PP Ball. The main task was building a big air ramp, for the competition, at the festival site. We did however, get in some boating. I guided the play stretch, at 15k, on Saturday, and Sunday, carnage. The river was 21k, I swam out of my kayak, ended up in the raft, and we flipped the raft at the top of Snowblind, freakin' huge. I was sufficiently freaked out, but it's all good. Here are some pictures!!

View from my tent, on Saturday morning, it got to 99 degrees that day. Awesome.

We share the waves in Washington, even with rafts. =S

Dinking around with the camera.

May I reiterate? We share waves here.

Happy Runoff Paddling!

Wenatchee Weekend!

First weekend on the water!!! So good! I made the trek to the other side of the Cascades, and spent a weekend on the BEST river in the PNW. Drove over Friday night, was held up longer than I wanted to be, so I didn't get to paddle that day. Met up with Tobin Dailey, Michael Gordon and a bunch of people from the UPS Kayak Club. We camped at the "super secret spot". An abandoned area several miles out a sketchy logging road, in the hills above Leavenworth. Absolutely gorgeous. The next morning, we jumped on the play run, SO GOOD. I didn't get any pictures, so here is one that one of the guys took, up at the super secret spot.

Another Whitewater Season!!

It's been a long time! I haven't been in a boat since December, been skiing instead. But the time has come, the snow is melting, and I'll be back on the river soon. Thought I would post a couple pictures to end the ski season, and start the boating one. Enjoy!

Alpental with my Dad, over spring break.

Alpental again!

Epic crash off the top of Vista @ Mt. Hood. It was hilarious.

Riding the lifts on a gorgeous day at Meadows.

Playing with the camera in the car, after skiing.

Night skiing at Stevens, it was gorgeous up there.

50 degree spring slush park rat day.

We had a ton of huge dumps this year. So good.

Glades have to be one of the best things to ski, ever.
