‘Big River’ offers fall adventure

NOTE: The Columbia River is a major river, with commercial traffic, rapid changes in flow and unpredictable weather. Boating the river may or may not be safe on any given day. Exploring a river the size of the Columbia is a daunting prospect for any paddler, and a region famous for its wind seems an unlikely haven for a canoeist. Even the Lewis and Clark expedition, having rested up a bit in The Dalles after crossing the plains, the Rocky Mountains and navigating Celilo Falls, were stalled for a time at what is now known as Crates Point because they were unable to make any headway against the stormy October wind. Only by leaving early the next morning were they able to round the point and proceed downriver.
