1st Tuesday night paddle for 2015


Great outing on the Helena Valley Reservoir last Tuesday. Gregg, Paul, Dawn & Scott, Greg & Wendy and Susan Paddled for about 1 1/2 hours on glass like waters and enjoyed seeing pelicans, ducks, geese, herons and swans. Great time of year for a start of our weekly paddling.


Inagural Trip

Full disclosure this was not paddling but my good friend Andy just bought this cute 12' aluminum fishing boat with a little putt-putt motor that we took for her maiden voyage down the Missouri from York Bridge to the Hauser Dam.

This bridge is fancy but not as fun and the old steel bridge that it replaced! I used to have fun as a teen jumping from the tall old bridge but decades of water flowing around it had weakened it and the gov't had to replace it.

It was a beautifully calm, tranquil day up canyon.
We had a blast and even if the motor was a bit loud, we were the only ones around to hear it. video
