westward paddle exploration: clear lake, willamette river, yaquina bay, and siuslaw river

sup touring

As a paddler, sometimes it is super easy to stay in Bend. There are tons of epic lakes and river runs within 45 minutes drive, let alone a great couple routes right in town. However, with the many hydrologic terrains I expect to encounter in New Zealand, I am ready to train on some water ways outside of the High Desert.

Next weekend, I plan to head west! Clear Lake (on 126), The Willamette River (out of Corvallis), Yaquina Bay (in Newport), and The Siuslaw River (possibly as far as Mapleton, all the way back into Florence) are some of the anticipated paddles. Stay tuned for photos and reviews!
