These illustrated posts revisit of each of the waterways I’ve paddled. They enhance my book: ‘SW Washington Paddle Trips‘. The ones I have paddled are narrated and illustrated in these posts. Online maps and research can be misleading. I have visited each of these launch sites, list trip possibilities, so you won’t get lost as I sometimes did. It’s an honor and a privilege to write for travelers like you. Allan Fritz at: allanymail@hotmail.com
