Length: 1 day

Kayaking - Pillar Rock Day Tour - WAThe shores of the Columbia were once lined with river towns that are no longer. In the days when 39 salmon canneries were in operation on the Lower Columbia, these towns thrived. The shore through here is now wild, with cobble-covered coves tucked among dramatic basalt bluffs, or forested hillsides dropping steeply to the water's edge. A few structures still stand, but lines of old pilings are often the only visible vestiges of the existence of whole communities that once bore canneries, mills, farms and homes. On this loop down river from Skamokawa you can get a feel for how this area was during its heyday and note how nature has reclaimed it since it was abandoned in the 1930's. Pillar Rock itself is an ancient basalt feeder tube, rising 50' out of the river. Lewis and Clark camped on the shore nearby, and one of the three still-standing.

Cost: $95 + tax

Length: 1 day

Kayaking - Julia Butler Hansen Wildlife Refuge - WAThis is a good introduction to kayaking, a one-way trip with the tide that begins in protected Elochoman Slough. Here we will paddle along the path of Lewis & Clark, who were led into the slough by two canoes of Wahkiakum Indians who brought the Corps to their village to trade in 1805. The route has some of the same individual trees that were standing at the time, as the spruce swamps here have trees over 300 years old. The most obvious residents now are Bald Eagles and Osprey, which we can watch as they patrol the sloughs for fish. We will emerge from the sloughs onto a sand beach along the main channel of the Columbia for lunch before taking historic Steamboat Slough down to Skamokawa. This is a leisurely trip, with time for bird-watching, photography and working on paddling strokes.
