Canoeing a river is much more relaxing than backpacking. However, I didn’t know rattlesnakes could swim until that trip. The day I crossed a swimming rattler’s path, I made record time paddling. Rob and I arrived at the designated lunch stop at least a half an hour before everyone else in our group.

If you couldn’t tell from my paintings, oranges and chocolate are a favorite, especially in the backcountry. This Upper Missouri River National Monument, thus designated by President Clinton on his last day in office, is 149 miles of widely varying terrain and an exquisite river.
