It's a beautiful September day, not a cloud in the sky. Nephews and nieces are in town, and it's a great day to get out on the river. We floated Alpine Canyon and managed to time our launch just right in between the commercial groups. For such a lovely day on a holiday, and a Saturday to boot, it was almost like having the river to ourselves -- no traffic issues, the launch ramps weren't a zoo, very relaxed. And, we finally got some pictures of the new raft; here we are at the tail end of Kahuna.
