Stand Up Paddle Cascade Lakes

Date: September 20, 2013 - September 22, 2013 PDT

Stay in yurts near the trendy town of Bend and paddle the lakes and class 1 rivers in the area (Class 1 means there is current, but no significant rapids) on stand up paddleboards.  You definitely want to have some upper body strength to do this trip, but don’t need to be an experienced “stand-up paddler” if you’ve been canoeing or kayaking before.  This side of the Oregon Cascades usually has great, sunny fall weather, and the mountain scenery you’ll see while paddling is spectacular.
