Paddling in the Rockies

Since Macy's recovery we've been paddling in the Rockies, and enjoying the scenery.
We've been having an interesting time paddling here – the Bow river was good, but the Skookumchuck Creek had a god awful shuttle – 40Km on dirt roads (poor Macy) each way. It took us a day getting from the main road to the top of the river, which meant only some of us got to paddle it. Despite the shuttle it's been marked as one to return to in a 4×4 so we can all enjoy it. The next day we opted for a quick run down a river that was close by – the Findlay creek. It was anything but quick. A log jam forced us off the river and up the walls of the canyon – much rope work followed. Sharon's infinite wisdom and uncanny sixth sense lead to her getting off only yards upstream at a much easier take out that we couldn't get back to. I'll post account of that later & Sharon'll update you all on what she did on her birthday once we've had time to write those entries.
