American Rivers Urban River Revival Celebrating Ohio’s Mill Creek
American Rivers - Mill Creek was crucial to the development of Cincinnati, Ohio. In the city’s earliest days, it drew settlers looking for rich, fertile farmland, and water power. Mill Creek’s clear, clean water and thick riparian forests provided food, water, and timber.

Frogma Breckenridge, Colorado, May 26, 2017
Frogma - Having reminded myself in my last post that I had some catching up to do on our last few days in Colorado (which were quite glorious), here's the first catch-up post.
Rapid Magazine Blog Immersion Research Accessories

Canoe Roots Esquif Canoes at Paddlesports Retailer

Canoe Roots First Look Level Six Nahanni Canoe Jacket
Canoe Roots - After a few years of not having a full zip paddling jacket on the market, Level Six is coming back with the Nahanni full zip canoe jacket.
Jackson Kayak The Greenbrier
Jackson Kayak - The Greenbrier is 173 miles of pristine, crystal clear river. It is one of the longest free flowing rivers in the world that is not dammed. I believe the name comes from the beautiful green hue the water seems to retain in the deeper pools or maybe it is named for that very plant that lines the banks along this West Virginia hot spot. I prefer to think it is the former.
Rapid Magazine Blog Dagger Kayaks Phantom
Rapid Magazine Blog - After spending a few years as an under-the-radar passion project, Dagger Kayaks has revealed the Phantom. The Phantom is about nine-foot long and is a perfect creek boat.
Mt. Hood H2O West Fork Hood
Mt. Hood H2O - I have run this section a few times with my dad at around 4' on the Tucker gauge from snowmelt. I like putting in at Lolo Pass, but for those who are adventure-adverse putting in at the Lake Branch confluence is convenient.
The Roaming Dials InReach Fail?
The Roaming Dials - Many of us carry and use InReach communication devices for safety and texting home or to people with other devices.
Jackson Kayak Exploring New Waters
Jackson Kayak - My dad is the one who initially got me into fishing. Almost every weekend we would hop in the john boat and launch onto our favorite lake and fish for hours. We caught numerous fish and had tons of fun.
Sea Kayak Stonington The Bold Coast Boot Head
Sea Kayak Stonington - I had a lesson to teach on Cobscook Bay, so Rebecca and I used the opportunity to get away for a couple of days and get in a little paddling and hiking of our own. We’ve been at Old Quarry in Stonington, doing a bit of everything, and it felt good to be going down the road, off in our own world again.
