BACK-COUNTRY PADDLE BOARDING
Finding new places and having new experiences in remote areas has always been a big part of who I am. Before discovering SUP, I was a long distance sea kayaker, thru-hiker, back-country skier, and mountaineer. Paddle boarding is giving me opportunities to continue my path of exploration.
The Deschutes River running from glacial mountains in Central Oregon through the High Desert on its way to the Pacific Ocean via the Colombia River Gorge is a special river to me. Among its many charms is its sections of solitude. The Middle Deschutes is one such section where deep canyons requires a considerable hike to get in or out. It's a great place to hike for a whitewater session.
