Description: A great number of bad weather days have restricted us to camp because it is too dangerous to clamber up the bluff to the quarry. With little to do at camp, I often explore the gravel lined beaches of the Colville River searching for interesting rocks for my two-year old son Wyatt. These are examples of the many colors of rocks found along the river.

Description: A Cesna 206 was used to extract all team members from the field back to Umiat. The large wheels on the plane allowed it to land on gravel bars near our campsite. Unfortunately, it could not land closer to our campsite. As a result, we had to drag ALL gear a few hundred yards, through a tangle of willows, so the plane could be loaded with gear. Each flight carried gear and one person.
