Today I met up with some boaters from the SE to try a new river. Clear Creek looked like something that I would like, and would be a perfect “getting back into paddling river”. Stephen came along, just to prove that he wasn’t too cool for class III water!
Tera was willing to show us down as it is one of her home rivers, and she brought the famous ‘Louie’ with her. It was a very pretty run. The two bigger drops were right at the beginning, and I made it through them fine. I felt a little tippy in my boat, but soon regained my strength/balance. Clear Creek soon joined up with the Obed River, and it was kind of like a left turn from a back street onto a highway. The Obed was about three times as big (width and flow), but no more intimidating… more of what I am used to.
The great part of the day was even though we met and put on around 2pm, we made it off the river long before it got dark!
