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 status of Class V boater. But once the days start to shorten and icicles form along its edges, the river sees less traffic. The exception, of course, being Rush Sturges who’s rarely deterred by the cold.

Winter is coming. Where are you planning to paddle?
