The Grand Canyon of Stikine
This great run was this year done by Mark Basso, Jamie Wright, Corey Boux, Ricky Lambert and Benjamin Hjort, from 01.08.2010 to 03.08.2010. During 3 days we paddle though the Grand Canyon of Stikine. Probably the earliest and warmest descent ever done. Air temperature between 20 and 30 degrees, water temperature around 20 degrees. The water level was between 305 and 350 m3/s, and came up the last two days because of good weather.

The project was filmed by Benjamin Hjort on a Canon 5d mark II and a GoPro HD camera. No space for a tripod in the kayak:(. Just hand held with a Canon 16-35 USM II and Canon 50 mm lens.
