Wedges Creek Video: Middle Road to Riviera Avenue

Best caught at higher levels than when we visited it, Wedges Creek is a seldom paddled gem located in Black River Falls. The highlight of this trip was not the creek itself however, but the extended section of the…

Milwaukee River Video: Newburg to Fredonia

Have a look at the Newburg to Fredonia section of the Milwaukee River we revisited back in June of last year. It was anticipated to be a little more exciting than it turned out to be but there was…

La Crosse River

This was a long 16.5 miles on the La Crosse (and more than we’d recommend biting off in one day) but it's a beauty of a river and perfectly fit for a couple day trips. It's a difficult task…

Mormon Creek

The seemingly mysterious whereabouts of Oehler Cave is solved. It's been a cave we couldn't stop thinking about from the moment we laid eyes on it. After a less than ideal paddle, we finally uncovered the location of Oehler…


Sugar River Video: Albany to Brodhead

Here's a look at the Albany to Brodhead section of the Sugar River. Popular with the tubing contingent, we caught it before tubing season officially began. Unfortunately, it's quite unspectacular all the way through Decatur Lake...…
