Huck Finn's Guide To The Clackamas River
We finally made it back down to the river. We took the path that the snake scared us off of last time. Where this trail comes out, there is a creek that opens up and feeds into the river. It's at a bend in the river and the creek mouth is pretty big. It makes this perfect swimming hole. There's no current and it's not too deep. It was amazing. Halen was ready to dive right in. Bruce couldn't believe how much fun it was either. Next time, we'll definitely bring swim suits. It wasn't as cold as I thought it'd be either. I was trying to scout out a good rope swing tree, but there weren't really any adequate branches. Oh well. It's still a super cool spot. Dan was working, so now he wants to go and see it. I am dying to get a rubber raft. While on the little beach down there, several rafts with whole families went by. That would be serious fun. We just need to get the raft and someone to pick us up downstream.
