Canning At Flood On Coastal Plain
Big wind blowing out of the east - Canning 1/4 mile wide or more. We had to turn and constantly paddle toward east (river right) shore to make any headway. All the sandbars under water. Canning doubled in size overnight from rains in the Brooks range. Swim here in the 42F water would probably be lethal - next time better bring our dry suits!
