Brief History with Shane Turnbull
While filming for Habitat we tried to contact the paddlers who would help tell some of the history of whitewater rafting in the Pacific Northwest. Shane Turnbull is one of a few paddlers that I would consider 'lifers' of the sport. Paddlers who have been floating rivers for as long as they can remember... After sitting down with Mr. Turnbull, Owner of Chinook Expeditions, it became very clear that his knowledge of rivers and history of the area was tremendous. Here is a brief piece of his interview on some of the history of whitewater rafting here in the Pacific Northwest.
