Another 1938 Lodore Film

Hi All, Dee Gardner has put together a short film on his father William Stewart "Stu" Gardner's October 1938 solo Folbot trip through Lodore Canyon.
Stu noted seeing footprints from the French Trio. He ran Lodore again in
1939 with Alexander "Zee" Grant, and the short film uses footage from the
1939 trip.

Enjoy! Yours, tom

Atta boy,Stu. Very nice. And bonus points for not calling it "the gates of Lodore," over and over again...

A few years ago the Salt Lake Tribune had a "where is it?" photo contest that used a photo of the Green River in Lodore Canyon taken from the hike above Rippling Brook campsite. The photo was almost identical to the cover photo on Roy Webb's book "If We Had A Boat". I was pretty disappointed the following week when they reported how many people answered correctly with "The Gates Of Lodore". Their "correct" answer is off by quite a few river miles.
