RIVER RUNNING --The mountains are groaning under the weight of near record snowpack.
Now that spring finally does appear to be arriving, river rafters are expecting the runoff to be epic.
The local Northwest Whitewater Association will prepare rafters for the invevitable carnage in this whitewater bliss by holding a pre-season "flip clinic" on Sunday, 5:30 p.m., at the Spokane Valley YWCA pool.
But most all river runners need a little practice in learning how to flip the boats upright so they can continue the journey.
Check out the highlights captured at an outdoor "flip clinic" and produced by Dave and Shelly Becker.
