Gallatin - Thanks Glenn, spider, and Chris

Caught an evening run last night with Glenn, Neff, and Glenn's buddy Chris (not sure if he's on the Buzz or not?).

I went to school at Montana State, learned how to roll a kayak in the university pool the last semester I was there, but never hit a river until I moved to Missoula the following summer. Definitely left some unfinished business in SW Montana. I first ran the Gallatin in a raft back in '06, then again last summer.

Last night was my first kayak run on the Gally. Holy shit, I missed out. I thought the MF Flathead was quite possibly the friendliest III river in the state. I was wrong. The Gallatin is even more friendly and playful. After two months of weekends on the Lochsa (which didn't suck at all!) it was fun to hit a low-intensity river and just try to surf small features and enjoy the gorgeous geology floating past.

Thanks again, gents. Looking forward to another round with you.

Fun times Shawn. Gally never gets that intimidating especially compared to the Lochsa but... higher can mean higher adventure. Still I love it. I'll take clean and classy any day. Thanks for the beer I owe you one.
