Video: Kayakers run upper Pack River whitewater

RIVER RUNNING -- Spokane Whitewater enthusiast Brian Jamieson wore a helmet cam to document his recent run with other kayakers down the big runoff whitewater in Upper Pack River's "slide section." 

If the run at this point seems to be unusually clean of woody debris, it's no accident, Jamieson said.  Sandpoint-area paddlers had cleared out all but one of the logjams in this section when he ran the river.

Of course, conditions can change any time.

This is NOT amateur water... but they make it look easy.
