Ice Ice Baby!

Honoring the local paddling, our friend Tyler Roemer came out to take photos of us at Dillon Falls.  He is a professional photographer from Bend, OR and really does great work.  Check out his site
Anyways, we decided that we should have someone who really knows what they're doing come take photos as Josh and I are moving to Portland soon. I'm starting nursing school and neither of us know when we will be able to see these runs again.   So here is Dillon in all its over photographed beauty...enjoy! :)

Hooray for local paddling!  Check back soon for photos from out PNW huck sessions! :D

Happy Paddling,

Hey everyone! The Kamchatka Project needs your help to get off the ground! Please check out the website for more information and enter the contest to win a pair of Rudy Project sunglasses! 

"The Kamchatka Peninsula in Eastern Siberia is one of the last truly wild places on Earth. It is a place wherebetween one sixth and one fourth of all salmon spawn, a place with some of the densest brown bear populations in the world, a place with no dams, no massive extractive resource operations, less than one person per square kilometer, and only one major highway on the 600-mile long peninsula. It is a place that is unexplored, a place that is worth saving and a place that needs attention now. "
"A team of expert expedition kayakers will attempt source to sea first descents of the lllmahaka and Kapaza Rivers in an effort to help further a salmon stronghold in Kamchatka. Exploring by kayak will lead the team directly to the salmon, conservation issues and the cultures of northern Siberia."

Check it out and spread the word!
