Looking for NW river suggestions
My boyfriend and I are headed to Bellingham, WA for the summer and are looking for a good river trip the first week of May on the way up there (it can be out of the way too, just not somewhere like, say... Utah). We've thought about Hell's Canyon, the Rogue, and the Deschutes. We don't have permits (Hell's/Rogue are pre-permit season anyway). It'll probably just be the two of us in our little 12' raft (once I fix the mysterious mating Aire bladder issue!). I feel comfortable rowing up to class 3 if we're on our own. We'd like to do a 5-7 day trip if possible and would definitely be interested in joining other folks if anyone has a trip.
Any suggestions on other rivers or beta on what sections to do would be greatly appreciated!
