Registration is closed

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.  Your acceptance is conditional on approval by the Organizer, who may contact you with questions about your skills and equipment.  If the measured water temperature is different enough from that listed below to warrant a change in required immersion protection, the Organizer will contact all participants and the Trips Board member with the update at least a day before the trip.

Narrative: The Cascade Locks shoreline from Marine Park to the east is surprisingly scenic. We'll explore this shoreline, leaving early and returning early to avoid the summer afternoon winds, and taking a break in a picturesque cove. Total distance will be about 7 miles
