Quite a few people on the river today. The river was bank full and there was NO ICE.
At this level it washes out the usual surf spots, only a few eddies on the banks to catch too. There are some huge wave trains to deal with, a great spot to do some wave blocking! I remember spinning upstream to see Bonnie take the first (and biggest) wave backwards, completely going out of site in the trough before I could see her red boat ride up the next wave. It was a quick run, about 2 hours.
Terrific paddling, could have been a little warmer.
