And we're off!

May 1. Spring and our season is open! We did a survey run on the river two days ago and were impressed by the numbers of bald eagles on the river. No doubt some brought in with the fishy excitement surrounding the Gerrard Trout spawning. Watching these huge (20lb+) fish leaping and jockeying for position is a magnificent sight. We also ran into an elk herd who are a regular feature in the valley at this time of year.

Just when we thought the omens could not be more encouraging, today our first visitors ambled by. These two young Grizzlies browsed beside the Rafting Centre and tussled a bit for 30mins before wandering off. Hopefully to find mom!

This is Early Bird Special season with big savings to be had on adventures in May and June. Pass it on!
