Missing Jennie’s 70/7 birthday challenge trip on Friday, and needing a head start being younger than her, I posted a Thursday Nisqually trip. One person signed up.
Paul Butler and I met up and headed down the river. The river flowed at 3180 cfs, a playful level for surfing. My goal for the day was to get a one day head start on Jennie and surf at least 70 waves.
Three otters greeted us above the third rapid, and we had brief glimpses of them frolicking before they disappeared from view. Besides the wildlife sighting, I was well on my way to reaching my goal.
