This weekend me, Austin Dannen, and Blake Sommers traveled from home in Spokane, Washington to Seattle. Peak 7 Adventures is starting a satelite location in Seattle, and there was a meeting/party thursday night that we attended to. After that, the boating was on. We headed to the Snapdragon shop Friday morning, and then to the Skykomish river. It was running about 3800 CFS, which is a fairly low flow, but average for the time of year. Austin in an IK, me and Blake in hardshells. We picked up Brett Barton and his friend on the side of the road, she broke her ribs (or it seemed like) so they pre-shuttled for us. That was sweet. All the rapids before Boulder drop were super fun, and pretty easy. Austin got out and portaged boulder drop while me and blake took one last look. We ran Neds, and it was super fun.
The next day, we headed over to the coast for Donkey creek. Donkey creek has 3 falls, all very beautiful. The very top one is a 16' pool drop named perfection falls. We spent the day here huckin and havin fun.
Sunday we met up with Joel Werdell and ran the Middle Middle. Me and Austin ran in the Duo, which was AWESOME!
