The second set of guide training days started off with Jordan and Brogan together in a stern rig. This was Jordan's first run on his own. After I got Brogan into my boat for instruction we put about 150 lbs of rocks up front in Jordan's boat to trim it out. Soon enough he will have paying customers for that!
The Sol Duc always serves up the scenery, its really a spectacular place.
The Elwa was a whole different beast than the Sol Duc. I am sorry to say that i don't have any pictures of the trip down due mainly to the fact that i was the sole oarsman in a boat of four on a rain swollen logjam fest that is the Elwa without the dams. Even with all the havoc we created by building the dams and then removing them it is still a magic place you must see to believe.
