Green light for todays Friday @ 4:30 stand up paddle gathering. The forecast is for mild and breezy with showers ending by afternoon in Bend, Oregon. (It looks like they've already ended as of 7:00AM - maybe) It's looking better for paddle boarding this weekend and high 70's by early next week!
Newcomers are welcome. We launch by the Bend Outrigger canoes from the paved parking lot near the Colorado Bridge (by Tumalo Creek Kayakand Bikram Yoga) we paddle upstream to the rapids by Healy Bridge on the Deschutes River and back. Enjoy your adult beverage and talk story afterwards. Cristina, Isabella and I'll be there to greet newcomers and explain the Deschutes river channels, should be interesting after last nights heavy rain!
