Gwragedd Annwn on her trailer at the Harrison Lake Boat launch. I am rigging her.
On go the forward-view mirrors.
Taking Gwragedd Annwn down the dock, off of the trailer. Thanks to my dock help, Paul.
Getting ready to row away, up lake and then down the Harrison River.
OOPs! Forgot my hat. My head is cold. I ask Paul to toss it to me.

Looking back up towards Harrison Lake. Whippoorwill Point to the East, Spooks Point to the West.
A little further down stream. Harrison Lake has disappeared behind the turn in the river.

The river widens. I stay on the East side.

Looking up river again.
A fishing boat goes upstream.
Looking at the delta/marsh area between Morris Creek and the Chehalis River.
This is the fastest part of the river. I must not get too close to the dolphins on the West Side, as the current goes around and under the logs along them.
The Dolphins. The current exceeds 12km/hr.
Snow on the Mountains behind.
The dolphins are a good place for the birds to sit.
Eagles like them too.
With the speed of the current, the dolphins fade into the distance.

Kilby Park is on the East shore.
