Enter Today - Wet Planet’s 2013 Photo Contest!
Though the 2013 season has come and gone, memories of rafting and kayaking remain with us forever. Gratefully, those unforgettable whitewater moments are often caught by camera - the thrilling runs over Husum Falls, your crewmate falling out of the boat, riding the bull at Rattlesnake rapid. Isn't it nice having that image with water spurting from your nose captured for eternity (and posted on Facebook)?
We here at Wet Planet love seeing the photos from our river trips - and better still, hearing the laughter when our rafters view their post-trip photos. To share these good times, we invite you to submit your favorite photos from being on the river this season!

Whitewater, Natural Beauty, Personal Growth Flow throughout the Salmon River Kayaking Trip
Like a waterfall, magic flowed continuously on the Salmon River. From its natural beauty to the people it brought together, this trip was amazing. I was captivated by the turquoise water, white sandy beaches, and night skies decorated with shooting stars. With five days to play in such sensory beauty, I felt awakened, relaxed, and more than a bit giddy.

Attention Columbia Gorge Locals! Exciting Event on the White Salmon River
The Columbia River Gorge is without a doubt, one of the most spectacular and diverse areas of rivers, mountains, volcanoes, and lakes in the Northwest, and possibly even the U.S. The people here recognize the treasure we hold and help protect and develop this place to an even more beautiful and vibrant community. Besides the historically rooted logging and agricultural industries, you'll find your typical Northwest coffee shops, a rapidly developing wine region, micro-breweries, restaurants using the area's locally produced foods, art galleries, and of course a wide range of outdoor recreation related companies and outfits. And surprising to many: Bingen has the highest number of engineers per capita in the country due to our developing High-Tec industry, spearheaded by Boeings' Insitu. The Gorge is beautiful and diverse in many aspects.

In the world of whitewater kayaking, the word "boof" gets thrown around a lot. For example, "I boofed the rock on the right at Husum Falls." But what does that mean? What is a "boof?"
