Quentin,

Unfortunately, it's been a very long time so I don't exactly remember where.  I DO remember that we were below the section of river that held trout.  Also, while we rented a cabin nearby, I believe we launched our canoes at a campground and arranged for a shuttle to bring us back there.  We did no more than half a day on the river.  The kids were little & we didn't want to push it.

One of the neat things about that area is they reintroduced elk... and they are thriving!  I had never seen one in the wild before but we ran into large herds there.  When they are "bugling", you'll know it!  All in all it was a very nice vacation.  My two small boys & three nieces had a blast but, as I recall they were quite young at the time, I'm guessing that trip was well over 20 years ago.  The funny thing is that I kept all the old books & maps up until just a few months ago, then trashed them!  Otherwise, I could tell you a good bit more & send you some materials.  Oh, well....

Yeah, I hope not to miss Copia next year.  I missed my time away with the guys.

Later,

Jimbo   8-)
