This is a little video I shot from my front yard last night – and a pic from yesterday morning. The Chief Parrish Fire between Horseshoe Bend and Banks grew to about 2,500 acres- during the night and has Hwy 55 closed. This shuts down paddling on the Main Payette from anywhere – and there is no access to the South Fork and North Fork runs from Boise. If you are coming down from McCall the Cabarton, North Fork and South Fork runs should be accessible.


My Truck is a Hangout for MonkeysAs for the Labor Day weekend – we had some fun times at the Gutter. We met some nice gals from Seattle – one worked at Seattle Raft and Kayak, but typical for me I can’t remember her name :-( But had a good time talking with them.

Here are some pics of monkeys playing in the back of my truck, our friend Jim helping his son, Buey, and my daughter, Paige, do a little boogie-boarding. For some reason didn’t get any paddling shots….
