Paul, Timber, & Yotes below one of a few canal falls pouring into the Columbia River upstream of Pasco, WA.
The Kennewick Party drew a great crowd. We paddled 15 miles of the Columbia River on the south end of the Hanford Reach on Saturday. Ground Support arrived just in time and The Risen Sun Premiere later that after noon was a big success! Thanks to Chris Bolken and Leif Kirchoff for hosting the event and COR Cellars & Syncline Winery for their support!

Sunday morning Ground Support said farewell to Paul and Keel since they had to work with the wind. Chris Bolken showed us what the Tri-Cities had to offer for whitewater with Bailie Creek as well as a couple interesting canals. One of which Ryan Scott decided to run that was nearly a 1/4 mile long dropping around 100ft. Video of this descent can be seen in a 2010 Film Release from Huckin Huge.
