Boy Scouts from Woodinville’s Troop 909 recently completed their “Snoqualmie-Snohomish 50 Mile Canoe Expedition,” an epic three-day canoe and kayak trip from Fall City all the way to Everett.
Nicknamed the “Sno-Sno” canoe trip for short, the falls-to-salt paddling adventure on the Snoqualmie and Snohomish rivers is an old favorite of the troop, and is always sure to test the Scouts’ canoeing know-how and paddling stamina. The challenging journey left the boys and their adult leaders thoroughly exhausted, but with a sense of satisfaction.
The 13 Scouts and adults started their journey by launching the troop’s flotilla of six canoes and two kayaks in the farm country of Fall City, then paddled through Carnation, Duvall, the outskirts of Monroe and Snohomish, before finishing off the trip in the saltwater of Puget Sound in Everett. They spent two nights camping on the riverbank.
