In the lower stretches of the Natashquan River there are some high volume rapids. They can all be portaged with relative ease however, but Tori and I decide to run a couple nice drops. Before committing to the first run of the day, I go over some specs on the paddle I use for wilderness whitewater trips. Watch how our dog Buck runs along the side of the rapids to meet us us at the end. You’ll get to see things from the his perspective too because we’ve outfitted him with a camera!
8:13 in their second last day of a lot of hall to go around on a short for dodging and a bunch of rapids One thing I want to talk about is paddle in my mind the best Title you can have for a wilderness whitewater trip is this right here. This is a gray al hammerhead. They're heavy-duty They're rugged. It's got a g grip on the top It's got an oval-shaped handle which means you get a really good grip I've city big hands and that makes a big difference for me. This is what we use for our flat water sections of our trip now They're a little bit smaller see my whitewater caudal is a good bit taller when you're paddling and the Crippin canoe was a very heavy load like we have a Longer Paddle is going to give you More leverage And enable you to make the turns that you need to make a little bit easier We're short cottle although it gives you good forward momentum Just really isn't going to be able to do the trick when you're trying to paddle a heavy to do like this now We got a gnarly Class-three rapids we're going to have to run this one without buck in the boat fuck knows the way We show them the way when we scout and he just follows us along shore and watches us And it's usually waiting for us at the end before we even get there Why are you feeling nervous there are a lot of families and their pupils? And we're pretty far right from the right door and we have to get where you are left in order to hit the right tonto money Come on - firing box Not you're far downriver. We reach another impressive rapid after taking a few cats with the fly Rod we scout decide to go for it Or settle for part. Oh, wow oh for charge for cock That was huge So we pushed on into the evening for Taj around to Spectacular falls got some more fly casting in and then when it was almost dark we found this amazing Campsite amazing view of the falls and then we had awesome Northern light show just dancing and streaking across the sky so Incredible campsite Incredible Northern lights show for our last night here on the river you
