Wet Winter = Whitewater KayakingSince the beginning of 2019, it seems to have rained here every day. Even on days when no rain is forecasted, a rain shower seems to emerge out of nowhere. To make things more exciting, we have had numerous hail storms and even some snow. The snow forecast for the Sierras is looking promising, and even our Coast Range is blanketed. With all this snow and rain, 2019 is shaping up to be an epic year for whitewater.

California Whitewater DreamingIf you aren't, you should be California dreaming. We sure are. It has been a cold winter, and we are dreaming of warm spring days running whitewater. The song Big Rock Candy Mountain permeates through our hearts as we dream of mountains gushing with crystal clear water pouring over granite boulders in the Sierras. Our dreams include multiday self-support kayak trips on several of our favorite runs including the Eel River. With plentiful water in the reservoirs, dam release runs should have good water all summer long. We are looking forward to summer getaways on the Trinity, Sierra Rivers, and even maybe Cache Creek.
