Chelan was so good 2 weeks ago, we all came back for another round. It's magical. People greet you in the morning, excited to watch you paddle a sick canyon stretch. They cheer from the canyon rim, hundreds of feet above. And meet us at the take out with smiles and enthusiasm. Thanks Kris, Chelan PUD, Tom O'keefe, AW, uhh, security? and everyone who made flows possible this year. I didn't miss a day and you can bet I'll be back for warm temps, water, and warmer smiles. Thanks everybody!!! Here are the pics. A little bit of excitement, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, eh? You all come for the photos anyway. Just like me...
We paddle safe.
