Winter in the White Salmon Valley
Winter is here, and the Holiday Season is in full swing! This is always an exciting time at Wet Planet, as we begin planning for the upcoming season and our International Trips head for exotic locations. This winter is particularly exciting, as the section of the White Salmon River previously hidden by Northwestern Lake changes daily after the removal of Condit Dam
|ONE MONTH AFTER THE CONDIT DAM BLAST
While the concrete dust from the blast of Condit Dam has settled a bit in our river community, all eyes remain intensely focused on the newly created – and continually changing – river canyon where Northwestern Lake used to be.
This year PacifiCorp plans to further decommission Condit Dam, as well as clean up and replant the newly formed river corridor. The new section of river may be opened by PacifiCorp for recreation as early as September 1st 2012. Boating the stretch before this date is considered extremely dangerous and is strictly prohibited until PacifiCorp gives the green light to do so. Wet Planet is in close contact with both PacifiCorp and American Whitewater, and we will continue to inform the community of any updates, and appropriately celebrate on opening day!
MOST RECENT NEWS: the take-out at Northwestern Lake Park is temporarily closed due to rapid down-cutting of the river bank in this area. The boat ramp will remain closed until conditions stabilize. You can see PacifiCorps statement about the closure on the Wet Planet blog.
|COSTA RICA - March 2012
Our Peru travelers are back from their adventures in October, and we are still admiring the photos and enjoying the stories about their fabulous experiences. We are now busy getting ready for our next international adventure: Wet Planet is traveling to Costa Rica during the last week of March 2012!

You'll get to experience four different river trips (including an overnight rafting trip on the Pacuare River), lounge on the Caribbean beach, fly through the jungle on an exhilarating zip-line tour, and soak in volcan Arenal Hot springs.
