Three Common Mergansers swam next to our inflatable kayak that we took to Grand Teton National Park. There were actually six in total, but I was only able to get 3 in the frame at a time. They were close, the boat was rocking and I was trying not to lose my paddle while taking a photograph.
On the 4th day of our vacation, we paddled the Yellowstone River in Montana. At one point, we had a problem with water coming into the boat. We pulled over along the river rocks, unloaded and fixed the scupper.
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.
