Hi All, I'll be taking the Big Water, Little Boats presentation to the Colorado headwaters next week! The presentation follows the whitewater exploits of Moulty Fulmer, the builder of Grand Canyon’s first dory during the high-water heyday of river running before Glen Canyon Dam. Fulmer manages almost forty years of Colorado River boating between 1942 and 1978, where he boated with Norm Nevills, Frank Wright, Dock Marston, Pat Reilly, and Martin Litton, besides rubbing shoulders with many other river runners who were Fulmer’s contemporaries. I'll include film clips of the first dory to run the Yampa (1950), the 1957 126,000 second feet flow as it looked at Boulder Narrows in Grand Canyon, and because it's Colorado and you all kayak, a short clip of Walter Kirschbaum running Lava Falls in 1960! Hope to see you there!
