I was thrilled to find out that Kristin was able to paddle out of Three Forks with me, and she was happy, too. She was going to paddle her kayak after almost a year. Paddling with Norm is easily done in their canoe, so this day, May 15, she would enjoy the independence of paddling her kayak solo. After a quick stop in Bozeman for a few supplies, we were on our way.
Norm met us at the dam just as we pulled into the ramp. We loaded up the car with my stuff and the kayak and drove around the dam to the put in about a half mile away. It is there we said our good-byes and hugged one another. We are not sure when we will see each other again. The next day, Thursday, I took off for Canyon Ferry Lake and camped just short of entering the channels leading into the lake.
The next day I set out for Canyon Ferry Lake. The countryside and vistas and hospitality of the people continues to blow my mind!
More to come…taking advantage of a rain delay at Lakeside with wifi in my tent!
Live fast ~ Paddle slow (I may have to switch that around pretty soon. :))
