Account One kayaker approaches the dam while two others have already started the portage around the edge of the dam. Southern Cal. Edison really hopes that you will do some other river reach rather than risk this portage, since if you screw up here you will likely perish. On the other hand, if you want to paddle Chawanakee Gorge, then this portage better be easy for you.
