From the Columbia to the Snake River

Hey friends! Just wanted to do a trip update and let everyone know that after paddling through the most recent heat wave and portaging around the Mcnary Dam, I have successfully navigated the lower Columbia and by sunset last night, made it to the mouth of the Snake River! πŸŒ…πŸ›ΆΒ 

This bucket list journey to canoe across America has been absolutely incredible so far and I am eternally grateful to the many wonderful folks who have connected, supported, and became a part of my adventure along the way. They are not shown here but I will be doing series of posts in the future including as many of these good people as I can πŸ™πŸ’›Β 

I will now in this next chapter be canoeing up the Snake River to Lewiston, Idaho which will be the end point of my upstream paddling before doing a 300 mile bicycle portage over the Rockies to begin my downstream paddle to the Gulf of Mexico. I may be out of cell service for long stretches of this section for the next 8-14 days before reaching Lewiston, so thank you all for your incredible support and I will be in touch in the near future with more updates 🌞🏞
