Last fall, Ben Hawthorne and I rallied from the Seattle/Tacoma area to the promised land: British Columbia. Over the course of three days we were able to paddle Tatlow creek twice and the Box Canyon of the Ashlu twice. I had the pleasure of meeting and paddling with Leif Embertson, Don and Darcy of Small World Adventures and also German paddlers Nils and Matti. Thanks to Nils and Don and Darcy for the photos! If you ever want to paddle in Ecuador, be sure to check out smallworldadventures.com
The rapids contained within the Box are awesome. They have a bigger water feel to them all the while being in a spectacular canyon.
Don and I scouting 50/50
Seamed out and about to go deep. Batting average: 0/1
Just up the road is Tatlow! The road is impassable once you come to a certain point, so it requires a bit of a hike, but it is well worth it!
Trying to find the path of least resistance down to the river.

2nd Drop. This one takes you soo deep!
Ben and I below the 25'er. You can really see how stacked Tatlow is from this perspective.
I think this one was called Lil Dave's. Nasty little pocket at bottom on r right
The Nymph Pool! The idyllic take out.
