Wind River by Bark Canoe

June – July, 2002

This was our first major trip together. 56 days, desperately hungry, with an outlandish plan to hike in and build a bark canoe. The sort of experience that builds a relationship or breaks it…

This was our version of “light & fast”–no boat, only the tools to build the canoe.

Eventually it fell!

Bending ribs.

A canoe in the making.

Our camp on the upper Wind.

Finally afloat!
