Mike Dearing picked me up in Ashland and rowed me down the river. Aaron Lieberman and Roger Goth met us at Tyee on night one and then we camped at Upper Tacoma on night two. As if to hammer home the fact that Southern Oregon has missed out on winter, we took Bear Camp back and did not see a speck of snow. Bummer, but also nice to shorten the normal winter shuttle.

We did get some rain but it wasn’t a real winter storm. The Rogue is beautiful in the winter, but I miss the ice.

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.
