    No action shots because we were both busy paddling any rapids, but my best friend from college recently got off a two year stint teaching in China and had a month stateside before going off to another gig in Egypt. He wanted to get out on a river so plans were hatched for the lower Salmon. Unfortunately, fire nixed that idea so we settled on the lower Klamath in far Northern California. We ended up doing about 65 river miles over three days from 30 something miles above Happy Camp down to the Green Riffle takeout. The water was low and the weather was hot so pools were trying at times but there was enough class II and III to keep life interesting. Good peaceful evening camps and lots of wildlife also didn't hurt.

    Love this spot… had it all to myself this morning and surfed for 40 minutes straight until my feet fell asleep. A friend showed up and snapped a pic while driving by. I eddied out, had a quick visit, and then back out for another 20 minute ride. Stoked

    No problem… Blue Hill Falls, Maine. It’s a reversing tidal falls. Incoming tide piles up on the outside of a bridge and the water then pours through making a nice glassy wave at the right tide levels. Fun local spot
