Another keeper, Gary! Way to go with helping getting another generation out there. I recognized the tunes from Jerry's songs... they sure go well with the slides.

Awesome video. ALWAYS love your photos but extra special to see kids enjoying the wilderness. Nothing better than paying it forward by bringing kids to paradise. Love Sawbill, great report. Thanks for sharing!

I can appreciate your maps notations regarding being hung up on shallow rocks. I got caught in the same place a few years back. Got stuck on a rock the size of a small truck. Literally had to get out of the canoe and walk it to the edge of the rock to get going. I can recognize most all of the places in the video. Love the site in the Kelso portage bay.

Great photos.

Enjoyed it, Gary. Looks like there might be another photographer in the family . . . :)

Thanks everyone for watching and the nice comments! I agree that Jerry's music is exceptional too.
I was amazed at how quickly the group picked up the routine ... hopefully they will want to go again :-)


Boonie - yes, at one time or another they have all shown in interest in the camera, so I'm hoping it sticks.


Jhb8426 - those rocks were nasty... my canoe nearly got hung up a couple of times. Then when I looked back I saw our other canoe hung up and unable to get free... considering the wind, it was not good. So we backtracked and helped them get loose.

You'll have folks to paddle with you for a long time. I miss being able to take my grandpa up but am grateful I still have him.


Fantastic pictures also. I just love your videos.
