Thanks to a bad snow pack in Quebec and some great advice from Lu, I found myself flying into San Fran mid April to be greeted by Nick Wimsett and what was promising to be a very action packed month and a half of snow melt in California’s high sierras. My season snowballed from; hard to find paddling partners and easy-ish low elevation runs, to having a massive group on some of the hardest runs Cali has to offer. And I wouldn’t change a thing; it’s definitely the people and the places that make any kayaking trip unforgettable.
Fast-forward a week, and I am once again sitting in front of my computer, this time I am staring at nothing and by nothing I mean the blank space on my screen where I would normally find the icon for my external hard drive … it isn’t going to show up. I have committed the ultimate mistake and forgotten to back-up my hard drive. At some point during my drive across the country it (the hard drive) decided to give up the ghost and take with it my entire collection of photos and video from this past season in Cali.
So, as I would love to share with everyone the amazing places I have been fortunate to paddle recently, you will have to hang in there a little while longer (I am hoping my amazing friends will come to the rescue and send me their copies of said photos). In the meantime here are a couple shots I had on my desktop.
An easy formula to follow: Good Friends + Beautiful Places = Great Kayaking
