September 30: the “wild” River Called

clay-cliffsrocks-on-flathead

It was warm on Friday when we were done with work and everything. It was the last really warm day probably for awhile, so since we had the boats already on the car we did a seven mile river trip down the Flathead. These are a couple of the shots I took with my phone. Above are the clay cliffs where swallows like to nest and the second photo is after we navigated some Class 1.5 rapids. (Matt fondly calls them that.) You get moving pretty quickly here and you have to watch out for rocks. It is beautiful in every direction; no doubt in my mind this is one of the more remote stretches and away from pretty much everything. This section of the river is a true treasure, thanks to the tribe setting it aside; otherwise it would be flanked with houses. Keep it wild! 🙂
