I couldn’t thinking of a better way to spend my birthday. We had such a great time with chinookrafting yesterday, a perfect social distancing activity during this different time.
Is there a better feeling? 🌊
End of a sweet season on the Kananaskis 👌 Thankful for how much time I got on the water this season and for a new community of dirt bag friends on the river.
