Chattooga, Section 3.5. April 18, 2004. My first day back on the river since shoulder surgery in October, 2003.

First thing I did on the river was meet this goose.

I followed the goose around for awhile until

the goose decided to split.

Broad River, September, 2004 After a priming rain by Charley followed by the torrential Ivan, we were treated to 10-11feet (put-in bridge gauge) on 9/17 and 8 1/2 feet on 9/18. Here are some highlight photos and some video of Roostertail on the 10-11 foot day. Alice was there that day but I did not get any photos of her, maybe next time.
