Action packed weekend...

Austin Rathmann scouting Skoonichuck Falls, Eagle Creek, OR

Last weekend was quite an adventure here in the gorge. Saturday started out with a large crew including a small group from Seattle and no one backing down from the surprising 3.9 feet on the Little White when we arrived at the put in. The day ended with the LVM 25 premiere in Hood River, thanks to Stacey Johnson for organizing the event, and the next day a large group including Nick Hinds, Scott Waidelich, Ben Hawthorne, Paul Gamache, Jesse Becker, Jason Schroeder, Christie Glissmeyer, Austin Rathmann, and Ryan Scott hiked up Eagle Creek for a high water huck fest. There was plenty of action, broken paddles, and humbled paddlers. At the end of the day everyone involved was more than happy to be at the take out...here are a couple still images taken by Paul Gamache and Jesse Becker...video coming in Northwest Video Scrapbook VI.

Skoonichuck proved once again to be one of the toughest put in rapids here in the gorge and recieved a 50/50 rating by those who dropped in at this flow. The still cameras didn't come out much below this drop, but look for the video in Northwest Video Scrapbook VI, releasing May 1st.
