Late Season PG Paddling

It's that time of year again, when the days get shorter and the leaves turn color before the snow flies. Thankfully, water levels around Prince George have come up recently, and there's some decent boating to be had close to home.The Willow is near playboating levels and all the mountain runs to the east are up. Enjoy some pix taken from visiting New Zealand Andy Thompson and local Duncan McColl. Cheers! And the season's far from over yet so get on the river while it's still good!

UnLikely 2010

Last weekend a bunch of us made the trip down from Prince George and the north to the UnLikely Paddling Festival. This has to be the best paddling get-together I've been to, and having been six years in a row it has never disappointed. Awesome whitewater, great people, and a wicked party. Friday night had Drum and Bell Tower play the Likely Hilton, and Saturday Night Blackberry Wood from Vancouver got the crowd jumping till the wee hours. River trips included runs on the Upper Quesnel and Upper and Lower Cariboo. Levels were a little lower than normal for this time of year, but still good times in a beautiful area and friendly community. Enjoy the pix below! And here's a link to a video of the weekend: UnLikely
