It's Outward Bound 2001 PIB140. We started off from Lewiston and got dropped off at the Salmon River.
We spent about 3 hours distributing our gear into 7 inflatable paddle cats. We stored all our gear
into ammo cans, including 3 portable toilets.
It was hot and dry. Unlike the whitewater in British Columbia, the water was actually like 20C while
we're paddling under 35C sun. Once in a while, we needed to jump into the water to cool off.
On the way to Salmon River, nothing but this
Let's load up these ammo cans
Napping on the beach!

We had a lot of fun besides paddling. We did cliff jumping, swimming whiteriver, rescuing and etc.
Of course, running rapids were the highlight.

Another fun part of this trip was the Olympic Games on the beach. We had shortput, long jump, and sand dash competition.
We also did some free-diving. We held a very heavy rock, and walked down into the water, and who could stay down
the longest won.
He caught a fish, but it's a dead fish.

Salmon River was dammed to generate electricity. Every night at about 7pm, they release more water to Salmon River
to generate more power for the neighbouring counties. It took no longer than 1 hour for the water to rise 2 feet.
Last night on the river, for some reasons, they release so much water that water almost swept our camp.
