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: We will paddle North to the current and enjoy some waterfalls on the way. After playing in the current for a while, we will head back south to the Lagoon and explore there if there is enough water, have a snack break and then head back to the put-in.
This is always a favorite venue of mine with beautiful scenery and the end of a running river.
