Behind the Scenes: Waterfall Kayaking

OPB | March 20, 2014 1:56 p.m. | Updated: June 3, 2014 11:02 a.m.

Kayakers say that the only way to see the depths of the Salmon River Gorge is to learn how to kayak over 50-80 foot waterfalls. So how did the Field Guide crew get it all on video? We share the behind-the-scenes story of bushwhacking, rappelling, waiting and chasing as we struggle to capture a rare adventure beyond the trails end.
