Photo by Charlie Munsey This photo originally ran in the May 2014 issue of Canoe & Kayak. The 33-foot Sprit Falls on Washington’s Little White Salmon River is as iconic as waterfalls get to whitewater kayakers. To many, paddling the Little White and cleanly running Sprit is a mark of having “made it” to the […]

Photo Essay: Canoeing British Columbia’s Turner Lakes

11.05.2014

Lying on my stomach, I looked over the edge of the falls. A heavy white mist rose from the base of the canyon, 1,316 feet below. I couldn’t see the bottom. Looking up, I watched the wind silently gusting through the pines, scattering the mist. Not your usual start to a canoe trip, I observed.

Behind the Lens: Aerial Photography by Chris Schmid

10.08.2014

I like to shoot from this bird eye perspective; it gives some aspects and angles that people aren’t used to seeing, and allows me to play with the shadows and shapes of the environment.

Timeless: Jeff Snyder at Peace on the Russell Fork

10.02.2014

25 years ago the Russell Fork, on the Virginia-Kentucky border, was a rough and tumble river running adventure where the only entertainment other than V+ rapids and nasty undercuts was the Snake Pit by the motel and pondering the river’s amusing ability to sort trash in the eddies. There was the shoe eddy, the oil can eddy, the bleach bottle eddy and eddies that can’t be cataloged in mixed company.

No other major river in the United States is going to change more than the Rio Grande as weather patterns shift. The snowpack is going to be smaller and melt earlier, the droughts are going to be longer, the monsoon floods bigger. I wanted to follow the river to understand how these changes are already impacting the people and places that depend on the river.

Photo Essay: Packrafting Wyoming’s Absaroka Range

09.22.2014

This is a big, wild place. The Teton and Washakie Wildnernesses, combined with adjacent roadless areas including the southwest corner of Yellowstone National Park, comprise a 2.1 million-acre road-free wonderland. Few humans ever penetrate the heart of it.
