Riggins New Year's Trip
December 31, 2008-January 1, 2009

On first glance, this appeared to be a wildlife bonanza... turned out to be fenced, and an Elk farm. Boooo!

This and all subsequent river shots are of the Salmon River held firmly in winter's grip.

Ice floes collecting at various spots on the river were the order of the day

We were much further away than this telephoto shot appears. We had believed these to be Mountain Goats. After downloading to the computer it became obvious that they were their domesticated cousins. No brown MGs I believe!
