Monday arrived at Lock 31 lock wall at Buckhorn at 1400. Cruised 22 miles and three locks. The weather has been just beautiful since Mary & Tom arrived. Now we know where the Canada Geese hang out, dah, Canada. They make a real mess on the docks. From Tom & Mary: Today we went thru Hell's Gate - now the avid boater's that we are, we thought anything with HELL in it we should pay attention. HUGE rocks everywhere, some with houses on them, breathtaking. Lock 30 is an island, only accessible by
boat. They have a black bear that comes & crosses the lock gates. But after seeing the dead bat, we didn't feel it necessary to see a live bear. We tied below Lock 31 for the night. The lock closes at 7:00PM & after the lock people left, the local kids came & swam in the lock chamber & rode their bike off the lock wall into the water below the lower lock gate. Great entertainment for us - who needs TV. All is going well. Joe is still answering all my questions.
