Early morning paddle on the head
waters of the Cle Elum River (WA)
This is a great trip to explore
with the canoe for a few
hours. The river is slow
moving as it runs through a
beautiful valley.  There is
easy access to the water
and lots of camping in the
area so make a couple of
nights of it. I would consider
this an excellent spot for the
beginner paddler. Don't
forget your pole,for it is a
great place to practice.
