Craziest Outdoor Experience: Paddling Tumwater Canyon of the Wenatchee River athigh water very early in my river sports career. I was invited by the Creature Craft team to run Tumwater after our Spring Symposium at CWU. I ignorantly accepted and met them at the put in the next day. The river was pumping 9000 cubic feet a second down the canyon which made it very full on, big water class V. After getting pummeled for three hours, we made it to the bottom of the run alive. This set the standard for my future in whitewater sports.
