So Dave Stephan and I did what Chris Goble Suggested (thanks a million Chris) for our weekend paddle! The Wigwam River was a great river full of boulder gardens and tight constrictions between boulders to manouver through! a lot of fun! Even funner in play boats where we got thrown around quite a lot more than one would in a creek boat! We camped over night by the bridge of Lodgepole Creek on friday after setting up our shuttle. The shuttle is a big one, but well worth it. This is where we started our journey from Lodgepole Creek down to the Wigwam River. the Creek was a bit boney, but quite fun all the same! there was only about 2 trees we paddled under using our paddles to push away the branches. and 1 tree that we portaged. Wigwam was a great class III Class IV run! and the finish of the Elk River was great too! All in all it was a great day trip! We got in the water around 10:00 a.m. and got out of the river at about 3:00 p.m.
Enough time for a quick finish on the bull :)
I am currently looking at some spectaculr waterfalls and glacial creeks in iceland - too be a good paddler and have a boat.....
Tough to beat Iceland as an exotic locale but we're off to spend a week running the Middle Fork of the Salmon - finally got a permit in the lottery.Enjoy,Stew & Di
