A group of paddlers and cat boaters got together this Saturday for a little spring cleaning on the Wind River in Washington. The Wind is a stunning watershed but the put-in and takeout were getting pretty trashed and there was tangled fishing line all along the run. It felt good to get rid of all the clutter for the spring kayaking season to begin.

Let's hope the put-in stays this clean!

Thanks to Drew Eastman for organizing the cleanup
and grilling hotdogs for all the hungry volunteers!
Also, big thanks to everyone who came out to help and to the
National Outdoor Leadership School for their support.
