Big River – Washington State Park to Mammoth

Great time with my oldest and best friend Ryan and his family. First time on the Big River.

Water was low first few half, dragged yak once but inflatables got dragged a lot. Slow river. Steady paddling needed to finish. Not particularly scenic but very few people.
