Once on I-5 take exit 120 to Fort Lewis Military Base. Travel through the Easy Gate and continue to the ranges towards Lewis Lake. Continue past Lewis Lake for 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.
