Narrative: Join us on Friday the 16th for a Ridgefield and Columbia River paddle to Warrior rock light house and the eastern side of Sauvies Island. We will launch from Ridgefield, WA  and make our way down Lake River to the Columbia, crossing over to Warrior rock lighthouse on Sauvie Island. We can explore a bit making our way upriver eventually crossing back to Bachelor Island where there are a number of sandy beaches. (Lunch & break options are available on both sides of the river). Then head back downstream along Bachelor Island and back up Lake River to Ridgefield. The overall distance is about 7-9 miles depending how far we feel like journeyIng upriver. *please note that Connie and I are planning to park and launch at the Port Of Ridgefield Boat Launch which charges a 
day use fee of $8 but includes maintained facilities.
