Spring brings snowmelt and the chance to see the Klamath as a raging torrent as well as kayak and raft all of the beautiful tributaries (Clear Creek, Salmon).
Fall brings the salmon and colors to the river. The trees this year were more orange and yellow than I can remember.
Lately though, I have been falling in love with winter on the river. It does snow a few times a year around Happy Camp and we had a good snow storm in early December that piled up over a foot at Paradise Point. No one rafts. The river is the domain of elk, otters, steelhead and a few fishermen who go after them. This past week I drove for 60miles along the river and saw exactly zero people on the water. The river is an emerald green and a balmy 38 degrees. Floating down in drift boat almost felt like exploring it for the first time. Here are a few pics. Happy New Years!
