Once on I-5 take exit 120 to Fort Lewis Military Base. Travel north-east to East Gate and follow the road to Lewis Lake. Pass the lake and travel approximately 5 miles to the Nisqually River access.
This is my daughter Summer kayaking on the Nisqually River in Washington State. Spring snow melt from nearby Mount Rainer had the river flowing fast with ice cold water. She craves outdoor adventures and thrives when her boundaries are tested.
