Can anyone suggest about a 2/2+ run that's nice and scenic, or an interesting paddle anyways?In all honesty i'll paddle anything though ;)
The upper section on the Middle fork of the Flathead from Bear creek to essex may qualify. It does have one tough class III like rapid on it though. Keep in mind you may not want ot do it at high flows without a good roll.The waterton river would be on the easy side of II. I would put in at Olsens campground beofre the park and take out at the bridge. It is a long day.You could also try a section of the two medicine from East Glacier down. It may be a long way to a take out though. I haven't done that section.The north fork of the flathead is also supposed to be quite nice. It is over by Polebrige.
Hope all got out in between the weather on the long weekend. We had a rather pleasant surf-splash on the Crowsnest - 'rathole' is a very friendly, small wave/hole with an easy recirculation that's easy to walk-in or float to (it's just downstream from the upper campground below Lundbreck Falls).And ... at the risk of starting something that may cost us we note that many paddling blogs have a Swim-Board to fess up to the inevitable mishaps on the river. Any interest?
