Crazy Rowing This last weekend A and I helped organize, support and run this crazy rowing event inspired by legendary (at least in his own mind) rower Tiff "The Hammer" Wood called CPR VII, which stands for the seventh Corvallis to Portland Row. That's 115 miles of rowing in crew shells over a day and a half. The total amount of rowings times ranged from just over 11 hours to just over 15 hours this year.
This first picture is from the second stop on day one at the Wheatland Ferry north of Salem:
This next series of three pictures is the last group of rowers going through one of the chambers of the locks at Willamette Falls in Oregon City, including the last shot showing the upstream side seeping through the lock gates:
