Cameron River Vancouver Island

Cameron River

Located on the way to Port Alberni on Vancouver Island. This is a great creek. The call came from Shayne Vollmers that it would be running around 5-6 on the gauge. This is a very nice level for the Cameron. Provides nice consistent cushioning and nice flow so you can bomb down a lot of stuff. We met up at the gas station just outside Qualicum. Picked up a bit of fuel(read coffee) and we were on our way. Read through the rest of the story by pictures. Little write ups under some.

Filling up at the local gas station. Coffee to go, habitat loaded.

View from above, Steve Hunt running it in style. Love this little Tokina lens and watershed drybags which keep all my gear dry.
The logs which we were a bit interested to see where they ended up. This is where I landed my 8th roll of the day.
Steve Hunt on line and in control.
View at the last raid of the day. Final exam on the Lower Cameron, Dan Dunn rollin through.

River Rafting said...

Rafting is a water sport that includes thrilling rapids on rafts that navigate through river or other water bodies, like white waters, valleys, etc., that have enough degrees of exciting danger to be experienced by the raft's passengers.
