Rafe and I did a float on the New Saturday, beautiful day but not ideal conditions. Dirty water, 20-25 mph wind gust made it challenging to say the least. At one point the wind was blowing us upstream faster than we could row. Good day to be on the river with a good friend.

Best of the day

For JT...not sure what this guy was thinking, guess it was a tough winter

Notice the scarring on the trees from this winters ice floes...amazing at how high up it did damage
