Eel River + Rain = FUN!!!

It’s raining, its pouring, whitewater kayakers are snoring and dreaming of more whitewater kayaking adventures on our local Mendocino County waterways.

Last week, we enjoyed 4 glorious days of warm weather and whitewater kayaking on the Eel River in northeastern Mendocino County. We ran the Class III Outlet Creek to Dos Rios stretch at flows of 900-1900 – executing crisp eddy turns, playing in hydraulics, and surfing waves.

A local photographer meandered out to shoot us in action. Check out his photoblog.

We are doing our rain dance and getting excited about more river time.

Of course Simpler Times is an LFK Eel River Tradition.
