Explore the sandy beaches and rocky shores of the Columbia River just south of Longview. We’ll launch in the mouth of the Cowlitz River and head south in the slough along the east side of the island. After a break at the south end of Cottonwood, we’ll cross the Columbia and continue south along basalt rock shoreline for a couple of miles. We’ll return in the main channel of the river along the west side of the island. Cold weather gear and immersion clothing required. NOAA Chart 18524A1.
