Extreme Paddler, Drew Eastman shares some exciting happenings, and some new rapids he & his pals can hit!
Condit Dam on the White Salmon River has been blocking salmon from coming upstream and kayakers from going downstream for nearly a century.

Here is a photo of the dam that I took before deconstruction began as well as a photo of me kayaking one of the waterfalls on the White Salmon known as Big Brother Falls.
