Kyla Larson leads the way on her rental paddle board down the Columbia River Friday during a stopover in Richland with her church youth group from the Ontario First Church of the Nazarene in Oregon.

The cool river water provided relief from the hot summer temperatures for the group and their adult chaperones.
