Good Day, Sunshine!
Glasgow is just around the bend to the right
You can hear the mills operating a long way - it was nice to hear the church bells as I approached Glasgow
Barges, rocks and sand - a working man's river
I'm PRETTY sure I mentioned how shallow much of this river is...
Something you don't see much of here... a rocky beach
Tried to give an idea why you DO NOT want to get caught between the current and ANY immovable object... brrr - gives me the Heebie Jeebies
Used the foreground and background to try to show the velocity - moving at a pretty good clip in this particular spot, without paddling
For my friends and enemies at www.ship-of-fools.com / LOVE you guys! in my own particular way ;)
Took me quite a while to realize these are two bridges... duh
Just east of Boonville across from Franklin's Point boat ramp and Mile Marker 195 / by far the skankiest smelliest trashiest site I was on - no sand to speak of, mainly dried crusty mud which made for difficult walking... still, could be worse
This video got out of order somehow... tried to show and tell the sound of the water rushing through this, The Mother Of All Log Jams; behind is a tributary. You soon learn to keep your ears peeled for that hissing sound as it not so subtly indicates Potentially Really Bad Things Happening.
Some humanoid form was stomping around on this collection of rocks and debris... pretty sure it was not Bigfoot :)
25 miles until Cooper's Landing - ready to be there... maintaining this speed in a Yukon is beginning to resemble work!
Those roiled places, even if you're expecting and paddling vigorously through them, will turn you quickly into a Kayak Pinball - you'll be sideways before you know it
