Friends in Montana

No, Kayak Yak paddlers aren't in Montana. But some of our friends have been there! Most recently, our friend Ed Willett the Canadian SF writer (check out his website here) made a trip to Montana with his family. While his wife was busy with a professional event, Ed and their daughter went rafting down a frothy section of Gallatin River near Yellowstone National Park.

Ed and his daughter are the pair of paddlers on the middle bench of their raft.
You can't tell in this photo that under the PFD and paddle jacket, Ed is wearing a wet suit. Apparently it was not tiger-striped like the futurist suit on the cover of his novel Marseguro.

Ed reports that the outing was fun, and very very wet. It was a two-hour excursion highlighted by the Mad Mile, which has eight Class 3 to 3.5 rapids in a mile. Geyser Whitewater Expeditions was the company that got them on the water. It sounds like they had a great time.
