Trip was rescheduled due to adverse weather on original date.

This is our third island hopping trip for the month. We will launch at the Washougal Waterfront Park . Paddle up the Columbia River and go clockwise around Reed Island. The tide should be high during the morning and give us enough water to paddle the inside of the island. We will make rest stops as needed as well as stoppping for lunch on the Island. The tide should be with us on our return to our launch site.
