Back at the rafts, Dave and Eddie are ready to roll.
It looks like the intro to some TV show... some take off from "Friends."
But first we had to wait for the train to go by.
And then, class is dismissed and there is a mad dash to the boats.
Looking down river toward "The Pot."
The class gathers at the top and gets a good perspective for the changes of the land around them.
The class continues further up the hill where Jason can get some cell coverage to call his daughter and wish her a happy birthday.
Then it's up to the top of the cliffs above the river bend to get a look down river and across to what happened in the geologic past.
Dr. Taylor claims to have grown up around some Italians, and hence makes extensive use of his hands while lecturing.
Soem wildlife comes wandering through the classroom.
Dr. Taylor referes to his extensive field guide. Mark does well to keep up.
And class transitions into a field trip.
Mark has his own rock to examine. Be the rock.
Philippe brings his gear over to be loaded into the rafts.
Next, class is back in session and the students work out flow and erosion rates and the such.
Dave whips up omlets made to order for breakfast.
A Western Tanger and his buddies come flying in and checks out our camp.
Some of the telephone poles are on a bit of a slant, and the osprey's have built themselves a little nest.
Others however opted for the shelter of a tent. Not a bad place to wake up to.
No photos taken after dark, but the next morning, Eddie and Mark were found strewn out in the open air.
Dave puts out a great dinner of shish-kabobs with which Cameron and Rachel are well pleased.
Between getting lunch put away and before starting dinner, Dave is back on the river taunting the fish.
After the afternoon study session, Roy and Philippe get some zen stretching in.
Dave is the Chef for the trip, and gets a great lunch spread set up for all to make sandwiches.
