The morning started with a frost-covered dock here in Clarkston, Washington. The chill of the morning air warmed slowly as the sun rose and we bundled into jet boats for our navigation upstream into Hells Canyon. Highlights of the day included the aforementioned sunshine, Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep, and assorted birdlife, including bald eagles and one tundra swan on its migration. For the afternoon J.R. Spencer, a Nez Perce storyteller, came aboard and brought laughter and a connection with our inner child. The evening was topped off with a wine tasting featuring Coco Umiker and her wines from Clearwater Canyon Cellars.
