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.
