Paddling trip

Since I've never done this trip before, I jumped at the chance to paddle with a few friends from Whitehorse to the Takhini River Bridge. I've always wanted to do this trip , but since I usually paddle alone, I was a little apprehensive.

But it's actually an easy paddle. We had a headwind yesterday which meant we had to do a little more work than usual. The current is pretty quick through here and does most of the work! I could do it alone now, if I can just convince Stuart to pick me up at the bridge. Paddling back against the current is not going to happen!

Pretty little spot where we pulled out for a quick break. Quick only because the mosquitos were swarming us! There no bugs on the water, but once we got off the river they were awful!

The scenery was spectacular! It's pretty amazing to have this as your playground!

Approaching the bridge, a few hours later and almost done paddling. What a great way to spend a day!!
