It’s interesting to see how the landscape changes every day, and how the river gets bigger. It was a treat to buy an ice cream bar at fly-in “Flying B Store”.
Once we made camp that night, we saw the first challenge. I was sipping my wine when I saw Steve making the challenge to swim across the river, climb up the other side and up a BIG hill on the other side. I got up to take a picture, and he asked if I was coming, but I quickly shook my head. David, however, went with his youngest girl. Amazed, I watched them slowly climb to the top of that hill. Steve cut them no slack as he led the way, setting a pretty quick pace. David and his youngest didn’t quite make it. Still it was a lot for that cute little girl, her older sister anxiously waiting on one of the boats. Just swimming back across the river is a challenge, and she was quite proud to have done it. When Steve came back with Josh, Tristan and Sarah, he was talking the whole time, and they were laughing while swimming across the river.
Meanwhile our guides, AJ, Steven, Tristan, Tanner, Ty and S……………..prepared an incredible dinner. What they can do with those 5 Dutch ovens is amazing.
