My buddy, David, & I paddled down the Skagit River delta yesterday. I picked him up at 6:00 and by 7:30 we were on the water. Look at the map and you'll see the launch point at the North East end of Skagit State Wildlife Recreation Area.
We went with the river flow first. Then as we were back much too early, we paddled up river past the launch to see where the fork was. I was hearing Disney and hear was hearing banjos.
So, here's the math problem: one hour up river, and 20 minutes back. How fast is the river flowing?
