Week 3 - Or maybe week 3 and a half?

How did a whole week go by without me updating the blog? I'll tell you how: there were sick waves in every day, so I paddled all day, then went to bed. The water levels have just risen back up to 5300 cms (187,000 cfs), so nothing really good is in. However, for the last week or so, we've been surfing Rollercoaster almost every day. We took a lot of video, so we don't have quite so many stills, but it's still a large amount of media to sort through for this post.

Keep checking back. If the water levels continue to not cooperate, I will hopefully be posting photos more frequently. In the meantime, here is a slideshow of all our photos so far:
