Travels

White Salmon River

Friday morning we woke up early and headed across state lines to Washington to do some white water rafting on the White Salmon River. We actually got a raft to ourselves along with two other rafts filled with a church group and planned a half day trip down the river that would end with a 12′ water fall drop at Husum Falls.

Our guide gave us the basics about getting in, tucking in, and holding on as we go over the falls. It was fun but a little anti-climatic since we could really see anything as we went over but at least we got the pictures to see it from above. At the half way point we stopped at a flat landing where we were suppose to be taken back to our car, but our guide offered to have us continue down the river to the end and we decided to just go since we were having so much fun.

For dinner we had worked up a huge appetite so we feasted at Ox with lots of meats.

After dinner we went to downtown Portland to do some bar hopping ending up at Deschutes Brewery to finish the night.
