During Summer 2009, a pair of Chronicle journalists spent a week on a trek of the Chehalis River. This is a collection of their experiences and commentary.

Chronicle Reporter Eric Schwartz and Photographer Brandon Swanson finish their 90-mile professional adventure on the Chehalis River in early June 2009. The duo took the waterway from the hills of West Lewis County and into Grays Harbor at Aberdeen.
