Fed by springs percolating up from the base of Mount Adams, the White Salmon River remains a steady flow and chilling temperature throughout the year, making this Wild and Scenic waterway an excellent option to cool-off on the hottest summer days. In this, our fifth of an eight-part series on great local places to cool off in August, we take a ride down the White Salmon on a giant blue inflatable raft with one of several guide services that run the river.
