The Gallatin River flows north and for awhile the river looked good, nice and clear and excellent for fishing, but as we proceeded south, the effects of the storm became apparent, the river was noticeable higher and higher and cloudier and cloudier.

A lot of the allure of this campground that we felt last year wore off this time. It for some reason was like being surrounded with bubbas, lots of noise, people coming and going right through the sites, there is getting to be less and less campground etiquette anymore, the traffic on the nearby road just never stopped, and no phone or internet at all. Are we just getting older and less tolerant? I don't know. But the river did clear up and many, many rafts floated through, and we were able to fish a couple days.

|Wow, just wow!|
