Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park
Chris Tretwold, a native of Bellingham, expertly glides the rapids. These 10 knot rapids on Saturday were warm up exercises for him as on Monday 13+ knots were expected to surge through the narrows!
Tackling it head on
Chris has reported that Monday's 13+ knot tide were fantastic! His unexpected highlight came on the paddle back to Egmont after dark.
"The bio-luminescence flashing from the wake of our kayaks and the swirls of our paddle strokes made it a very memorable experience."
You earned it Chris...the magic. Rewards come to those who 'jump in'!
