    Activity Title: Boons Ferry Marina to Willamette Park
    Date of Activity: 9/24/2019
    Narrative: This will be my second attempt at this trip since thunder storms canceled the first try. We will meet at Boones Ferry Marina and Boat Ramp near Wilsonville at 9:00am and set up a car shuttle for our take out at Willamette Park in West Linn. There are restrooms at both Boones Ferry and Willamette Park. Parking at Boones Ferry Boat Ramp is $5.00 and takes credit cards. We will follow the river downstream enjoying the current assist of the river, stopping at Hebb Park for lunch. We can explore the narrows, but the flow is moderate at 56 feet which will not be enough to challenge us too much. Take out will be at Willamette Park. Bring water and lunch.
