Picture of the Week: Rafting the Wild and Scenic Rogue River

23 07 2012

The Rogue River in southern Oregon is one of the original 8 to be included in the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act of 1968. Last week I spent 4 days and 3 nights rafting and kayaking it as part of assignment for Northwest Travel Magazine. The trip, courtesy of Rogue Wilderness Adventures, was almost indescribably beautiful and inspiring. Which is bad news if you’re a travel writer. This picture is a particularly scenic spot called Mule Creek Canyon. You can click on the photo for a larger view.





Picture of the Week: Kayaking on Coldwater Lake

9 07 2012

As part of an assignment for Northwest Travel Magazine, I went kayaking on Coldwater Lake near Mt St Helens this week. Kayaking on a lake near a volcano is always cool, but this one will be extra special. Northwest Eco Excursions are the first and only folks that can take you on a kayaking trip of that lake since Mt St Helens erupted 32 years ago! Click photo for larger view.
