Kayaker drowned, Encampment River

Just heard on Wyoming Public Radio that a kayaker drowned while running the Encampment River with three others. The body has not been recovered.

Looked on the WPR website for details but couldn't find the story. Sorry to be so vague— I'll post further information when I find it.

I think some people in the Mtn. Buzz community will have a little more detail after the search is given a chance and the family has had some time to deal with it. I think that at least one of our WY friends was there. See this thread:

He walked down to the river, slid his boat into the water and with a smile on his face and the warm sun in the clear blue sky, he paddled downstream with his friends. That is how I will always think of a river.

Damn it feels good
