A Weekend of Whitewater

Good friends and paddling partners Larry and Scott spent the weekend taking an advanced whitewater clinic with Great Glen Trails Guide, Darren Laughland.

We paddled the Lower Ellis River, the Swift River, and sections of the Saco River. Having paddled mostly in California, Larry and Scott got a healthy dose of some classic White Mountain paddling, complete with lots of granite boulders and cobblestones in the shallow sections of the rivers. They both enjoyed the demanding paddling, with the requisite quick maneuvering to slalom around the rocks. Scott took his roll to the next level on Sunday, and Larry had some nice side surfs and transitions as he worked a ledge hole on the Saco.  -Darren
