Description:

We arrived at the Service Creek (BLM) campground at around 10pm on Thursday night. We pretty much set up camp and rested for the evening. Friday morning we woke up at about 6:30 am and prepared for our first day.

We did 20 miles the first day and ran two class II rapids. On the second rapid the canoe flipped over... I was safe in a recreational kayak.

The second day we did another 20 miles.

On our third and final day we finished with an easy 7 miles at the Clarno take-out parking lot.
