Togwotee Pass/ South Canyon Girl
So.. back in the day... I'm riding from Moran, WY to Dubois over Togwotee pass on my bicycle. About halfway up the pass, on a switchback, I see another biker a ways below me. Up the pass a little farther I catch another glimpse.. way closer. On the last part of the climb she catches me, hangs out just long enough to smile and say "hey", then leaves me in her dust. What a girl. About a month later, I was looking for a new boat and saw an ad for a used Perception. I called and a guy answered saying they were just leaving for a run through South Canyon on the Snake and if I wanted to try the boat out, they would take it and I could meet them. When I got to the put-in, the same girl was there.. it was her boat. She saw I was a rookie and spent over an hour helping me fit the boat and giving me rolling lessons. Then she proceeded to dominate the river.
Lower center of gravity, don't try to muscle everything, thoughtful and controlled... Women certainly can kayak...
