by Michael Hughes

Just as everyone hoped, winter is here and hopefully going to stay for a while. However, the snow and chilly weather have us thinking about about summer on the Rogue River and Middle Fork of the Salmon River. Here are the winners from our annual #MYNWRCPHOTO contest!

Al Case

The finale of Mule Creek Canyon is a swirly, boiling constriction called Coffee Pot. Nerves are high as everyone paddles in and hopes not to crash into the wall. Al captured this great moment right as the paddle boat and duckies head toward their biggest challenge on the Rogue River.
