A Paddle up the Barron River

2019 May 31

On Friday May 31, Bob undertook a solo paddle up the Barron River, from Squirrel Rapids through the canyon to Brigham Chute and return. The weather did not live up to the forecast; it was overcast with a chill wind blowing downstream. The conditions were not conducive to scenic shots, but the high water and wildflowers were good subjects. While the water levels were still high they were much reduced from their peak.

I continued our exploration of Cache Rapid (see Exploring Cache Rapids on the Barron River ), this time bushwacking up from the bottom; it's no easier.
