The river is like magic. Great running the tight stuff and dodging rocks.

Amazing trip and after reading the book and being on the river you can just feel the presence of these first pioneers and it's humbling.


Its amazing to realize what they did with the equipment they had. Great thoughts wildhooker.

Super cool old Mercury print ad from 1951 after Glen Sr. ran the Rogue River. Classic stuff!

Glen wasn’t only a good boatman, he knew how to cook up a tastymess of vittles for his crew! Who wouldn’tlove a river boat trip by day, stakes by the fire by night! That’s real liven for sure! This photo looks to be taken in the summer of 1969.
