Falls creek is a pretty wild place! You put in below a 90ft waterfall and the first few strokes you take are making a move past siphons and onto a long slide!! After the 10ft ledge the moving pool runs into a pretty nasty class 5 rapid that Ryan Young ran, I missed it on camera. Great summer run if you have the skill and the team!
As the leaves begin to yellow and fall sets in, the rivers begin to dry here in the northwest. As our thoughts begin to travel around the world thinking of warm paddling destinations we wait for one gem in British Columbia to drop to the perfect level- Dipper Creek. A magnificent crack in the Earth located in the Squamish valley, Dipper Creek is stacked with two days of incredible whitewater, waterfalls and tight canyon walls that loom hundreds of feet above the water.
BEAVER CREEK FALLS! This 45 foot drop located in the most NorthWest part of Oregon requires flood stage waters for it to become runnable. After the substantial amounts of snow and rain we received just days before…we decided to go check out the infamous Beaver Creek Falls. It was a…..runnable level….at best. The low water made the lip very chunky and never made for the same line twice. One ghost boat, one lost paddle, one swim, and a potential broken rib later…we were all very excited to have run this waterfall and can’t wait to go back at higher water!
Along came the snow, along came the rain, along came the AQUAS BLANCAS! This was my first time down the Hagen Gorge and the North Fork of the Washougal River just outside of Camas, Washington near Portland, Oregon. It definitely had some water in it…a little over 8,000 cfs on the Washougal gauge made for some sporty lines and comical times. Enjoy the Hagen Gorge! Shot 100% on the GoPro Hero3+ Black. Filmed & Edited by Taylor Hazen. Boaters include (the names I remember): Taylor Hazen, Andrew Bradley, Patrick Higgins, Adam Edwards, Patrick Heindel, Eric Monroe, Sam Drevo, Eric Adsit, Tony Skriv, Louis Henry, and some other homies!
