Would I be crazy to canoe the Kenai River Canyon. I am a new member and this is my first posting. I moved to the Kenai Peninsula last summer from Minnesota, I brought my old town Royalax (sp) Pack canoe. it is 12 foot 6 inches long and weighs 35 pounds. I am 5 foot 10 inches and weigh 175 pounds. I have done a lot of fast water river canoeing in Minnesota as well as extensive paddles in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. I understand the difficulties getting across Skilak Lake to upper Skilak campground. I always wear a life jacket, but am I crazy to consider canoeing through the Kenai River Canyon from Jims Landing to the lake with my small canoe? What are you okay what are your thoughts?
