Willamette River: Paddled up to the Falls

Yesterday, starting at noon, I took my Embudo kayak to the boatramp that is just downstream from Mary S Young state park and launched. I paddled upstream, I think about a mile, to the falls. It was a very interesting paddle. I stopped under the I-205 bridge because there was a sunny beach there where no one else was. It was kind of loud, but I managed to talk on the phone for about an hour, until I started to get really cold. I didn't realize it, but the falls is just around the corner from there.
