The first stop on our summer journey was near Dunsmuir, California. We met up with our friends Rick and Cindy and Ron for a day-long trip down the Cantara section of the upper Sacramento River. Putting in above the Cantara Loop on Cantara Road is easy, the takeout at Sweetbriar is not as nice. There is an intermediate take-out that looks real good if we can figure out which road to take off of I-5! The section is a fun, busy, Class III+ to IV run that flows by the beautiful Mossbrae Falls. See our trip report on Box Canyon for more pictures and information. Here is a picture of Castle Crags taken from the river. Now off to the Rogue River for a lodge-to-lodge trip!
