Paddling the Pacific Northwest (Paperback)
Grab a paddle as the author leads you on day trips and overnight adventures on the rivers and lakes of northwestern Washington. Travel to out-of-the-way destinations where kayaking allows us to pursue our innermost individual freedoms. Freshwater exploits in a sea kayak - not your typical jaunts in the Pacific Northwest. Here's proof that enchanting journeys are born in dreams of personal exploration. A Canadian paddler heads south to probe the rivers of Washington, searching for "slow pushers" to propel his kayak lazily downstream mile after mile. In the process, rivers and lakes become inspiring expeditions for an amateur paddler and his wife. A travelogue memoir of enlightening adventures set in the magic of the Pacific Northwest. WASHINGTON: Skagit River, Dakota Creek, Nooksack River, Silver Lake, Lake Samish, California Creek. OREGON: Willamette River. BRITISH COLUMBIA: Fraser River, Powell Lake.
