Overlander Falls is the furthest from the ocean the spawning salmon can swim to, the falling waters churning with too much force for their battered bodies to make it any further.

Us SLLPers travel in reverse, starting with a hike at the falls before making our way over 25 days out to the mouth of the ocean, following the path of the smolts on their way out to sea.

Here I am, smiling, excitedly awaiting the next day’s start of our paddle down the river.
