Every year on Halloween, Hood River-ites get together for a costume paddle down the "Green Truss" section of the White Salmon River. This year Jesse and I weren't sure if we were going to make it as we decided to try our hand at racing bikes in the Day of the Dead Super D in Bend, OR the day prior. Turns out it is pretty fun, and worked out pretty well as I placed 1st in the Women's Under 34 category, while my friend and fellow paddler, Rachel Crowder rode smooth to a nice 5th place finish. Wohoo!
After a rainy drive home at midnight, we went to sleep dreaming of what to wear to the Halloween paddle the next day. To be a clown or wonderwoman? Hmmm...... Feeling slightly exhausted in the morning, we showed up fashionably late by 1 hour. Oops. Apparently we were meeting at 11, not 12...
