After running the falls seven times yesterday evening with boats full of guides and having 100% success (no flips or swimmers) we took our first rafts full of guests over the falls on this morning’s trip. It was AWESOME!!! If you ran the falls last year at lower water levels and loved it, you should come check it out now.
The boats are going deep at the base of the falls and even disappearing for a few seconds. You might want to bring your nose plus for this one. The song “We all live in a yellow submarine” seems to come to my mind as we approach the lip of the drop. As foro the rest of the run, it is still awesome whitewater and incredible scenery. Really an experience not to be missed during these hot summer days.
There is a reason the Natives who lived here referred to this place as “where the rain meets the sun.” Some days, when it is cloudy and raining on hte Westside of the mountains and in Portland, it is still sunny and warm in Husum. So we hope to see you all out here at the Wet Planet Whitewater Center for some fun runs down the White Salmon River and some awesome plunges over the Falls!
See you on the river, Jeff
