Plenty of Water on the Yellowstone River

Looking towards the mountains on the Yellowstone River in Montana just as a storm is approaching.

Looking back at some of my photos from our vacation last September, I had a few images I didn’t use in my post that were perfect for Water Water Everywhere. We took a 12 1/2 mile paddle in our Sea Eagle inflatable whitewater kayak that took us 12 hours to paddle through strong winds. We had never paddle this river before and didn’t know it at all. We went ALL IN! It was bright sunny blue skies when we began, but by the time we approached our destination, storm clouds were edging closer and we had no idea how close we were to that final takeout at the Paradise Gateway Bed & Breakfast. The scene was surreal looking out over the mountains, feeling the breeze and hearing the lap of the waves hitting the boat. The original Living in the Moment post can be found here if you would like to read the full story. How did we get our kayak from Florida to Montana? Click the link above to find out.

    • The collarbone isn’t stopping us from that. He can actual hold up his camera to click off some shots now. He can move that rotator cuff in the way it needs to go on a paddle. Taken water shots from the ground. I got enough in archives to go all year. 😊
