Keravanjoki Reloaded

What to do when skis are all tuned up and ready, but snow refuses to show up? With temperatures mostly above zero degrees celsius and rivers still flooding, I opted to pull out the packraft (which I had already cleaned and stored for winter after the last trip once more, to go and check what else (aside of bushwhacking) Keravanjoki has to offer.

Wacky Creek

Every now and then there comes a chance to do something slightly different, inordinary, silly even. As it has been quite a rainy autumn here in Espoo, many of the small rivers and creeks have grown in volume lately, allowing some rare opportunities for a days paddle.

Following last week’s downpours a plan was set by Janne to visit Myllypuro in Nuuksio, to find out if one can actually paddle this tiny creek. As usual, it didn’t take much to get me interested, and early Saturday morning I was sharing a bus ride with Janne and Tiina towards Kattila. From there it was a short hike to the creek, and journey downstream could start.
