They found the same crytal clear water (just a lots less of it) and plenty of boulders, fun and friendship, plus it seems a budding poet. See the photos of their great two day trip on Zach's Lower Chetco Gorge Report.
Then take a moment to send a brief note to Senator Ron Wyden, Senator Jeff Merkley and Representative Peter DeFazio and thank them for introducing the Chetco River Protection Act that would permanently protect 15 miles of this beautiful river from proposals to mine it.

Danny Kent's Lower Chetco Gorge Trip Report:
Otters and aughts, waters without watts, duckying down the diverse deluge with wise guests and gratitude... for the mother for each other, sediments not smothered in logging run-off, but rather alive with salamanders and flitting fish, both emerald grotto-pools and the cacophony of cascading cataracts blending to form a bayonet of potent experience, striking out from the heart of the canyon and penetrating our own! Its good to be alive in such a place...Thanks, Zach, for making it possible!
