Yeah, some of your photos are quite nice. Where/how did you get a key to the gate? Nice try. Anything else that you've not mentioned? btw: it's not above the campsite where I was referring to. You're making the river crossing sound much, much more difficult and dangerous than it is. Yes there are boats, there can be wind, and there can be some current but it's not nearly as treacherous as you make it out to be. Countless numbers of inexperienced canoe renters have crossed that river without any problems over the past many years. So why now, according to you is it so incredibly dangerous? Seems to me that you're being melodramatic.
