Fisheye in Lava Falls

In Big Water Little Boats, Moulty Fulmer, the quiet Hoosier from Muncie, travels with Frank Masland and Frank Wright through Grand Canyon in 1948 by boat. Masland lay on the boat's front deck with his face protruding out the front of the boat, so he was called Fisheyes, while Frank Wright was called... well... Frank. Hazel Clark just fisheyed the replica of Moulty's boat the GEM in Lava Falls. Here is the link to the film of such incurable river happiness... Hoosiers Rock!

Yes, it accentuates my dowagers hump or it bashes me in the head in the howling wind, but either way, i love the buoyancy and how tight I can cinch this jacket up!

Right on Schutzie. “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by every moment that takes your breath away.”

Hazel's vantage point sure looks fun! There is some serious washout potential there, I'd have to say she is brave, and she must also trust the boatman to hang it out like that. Good wave ducking technique, looks like a surfer in the ocean.

Also enjoyed the hat as a bail bucket...
