Very good article and video. I love how there has been a lot more videos with articles lately. I think they really bring it all together.

You are the queen of the written word, Addie. Snicker-snacking, river monsters, rattlesnake, tricked-out burgers--what images. And you get extra points for not allowing a sub-standard beer anywhere near your house!

mmmmm....elderflower cordial...from my pharmacist.

Another reason to lament the passing of Summer.

Nicely done.

I enjoyed the article and video. Always good to get "beginner stories" on BPL.

Hey Addie!

Nice job and congrats on the write up and video. Looks like it was a great time! Sorry to have missed the fun, although I'm heading out for a paddle next week on the Green in UT. All the best.

I much enjoyed your story, which I read just before departing for the September session of the course. We had a different venue (Yellowstone River from Gardiner to Emigrant, twice through Yankee Jim Canyon) but just as much fun. We rated some special attention, as a deputy sheriff was asked to arrest all of us for trespassing at 10.30 pm Saturday night. The BPL staff handled this the same way they handled the river, with tact and skill.

Looking forward to your next article.
