Here’s a video from ITV contributor Matt Kurle to get you in the mood for whitewater.  Shot back in February, this beautiful piece showcases the rocky drops and lush landscape of Western Washington as boaters hit up Ernie’s Canyon on the North Fork of the Snoqualmie.

“A run down this classic NW creek on a chilly February day. Lots of great lines, and bad ones. A great day on the river for sure!”
