It was a 9:00 to 5:00 day. Except we weren’t at work, there was plentiful beer consumption, and we were on the beautiful Illinois. Launched at 9 AM and took out at 5 PM. We pushed a little in the morning and relaxed in the afternoon to enjoy the canyon.

Stopped at Pine Flat to water the trees, a quick stop at South Bend to determine that, yes, it was snowing and then on to Prelude and Green Wall. We must have done something right because the snow/sleet/rain stuff stopped and the sun broke free long enough to get to the bottom of Green Wall and have a lunch atop a rock with a great view of the beautiful rapid.

I own and operate Indigo Creek Outfitters, an Ashland-based whitewater rafting company that runs trips on the Rogue and Klamath rivers. Shortly after I moved to Southern Oregon in 2004 I started exploring some of the nearby rivers and absolutely fell in love with the area.
