Freeheel,

Great pictures, and beautiful country. We went thru there in '08 on our way to Alaska. I envy you living so close to be able to go there any time you want.....well, I don't envy you in the winter. :-)

Looks like enough room there to turn. Is that Fallen Leaf?

Not a kayak, per se - this is us with our 1950-era Willits Bros. canoe at the Lake Tahoe KOA last month...

Boondocking on the Columbia River. If you come south from Prosser through Horse Heaven, you wind up right here on the Columbia.

The trains are a bit loud and run fairly often, but the site is free and you can turn around with a 31' Airstream in tow. Great place for one night in transit. The closed area to the west of the estuary was more inviting, but there is no room to turn around-- if the gate is closed you'd have to back out all the way.

Our apologies to the Forum for making it look like DOORGUNNER and I like yaks (all wood, all owner-built) more than Airstreams...

As an example of DOORGUNNER's generous instruction, here's a couple of salmon swinning upstream. Keeping the bow pointed into the core flow can tire one out pretty quick.

a underwater case for your 5D cost about $2K.
more than the kayak you would be in!!!
now if you want to just protect your Canon while paddling and only take pics while in a safe spot or on dirt, you could just use a pelican case or maybe double dry bag it. there's a lot of "stuff" out there for camera's to make them useable, try some of the flexible housings, Dica pak is one , there are a few others.
google away.
