No fishing today! Doug worked in the shop tying flies and I went for a walk. I found a shady spot right on the Yellowstone River and sat with the intention of reading my latest book. I sat with my feet in the river and did not get much reading done. Just a few yards up river was the site where rafts were put in for white water rafting trips. I sat and watched these go out and bobble down the fast water. I actually have no desire to do this. It looks like fun is some ways but I am not interested in holding on to a boat for dear life while bobbing up and down in a river moving faster than my car. I think I will stick to walking the shores of the rivers and getting a slow and close up look at the scenery.
After supper we met our new camping neighbors who are from Oswego. What a small world! Tomorrow we are going down near Canyon Village and to Artist Point - the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. We will have lunch along the way and then hit a favorite fishing spot.
