Alpine Paddling -Upper Durance 02/08/2017 by Hannah Bellamy

Ciaran on the Upper Durance

The second river of Ciaron’s last day!

As tonight is the night we’re going out into Briancon for a meal, we planned for an early finsh and this afternoon paddled a short section of river; the Upper Durance. Apart from the sewage outfall which has given this run the nickname ‘stinky poo river…’ this is a very beginner friendly run, with fun and fast moving water with a few little rapids and lots of playwaves.

Today has been one of the warmest so far, and we took the run steadily in the sunshine, geting out just before the barrage. We headed back to camp to shower and spruce up for our evening meal.
