Allie and Rumbeau awash in the Clearwater River, doing their version of syncronized swimming in honor of the Summer Olympics, July 2004. The dynamic duo are about to swim under a bridge, the vantage point from which I was able to capture this moment.
On a historical note, gold was found in this river in the 1880s and thus another gold rush of the west took place. A handful of modern day gold miners frequent this river during the summer months; it is truly a river of gold.
This was my first choice for John's Monday Photo Shoot, but after going back through our pics from the new year trip to the cabin, I changed my mind. This morning, I changed it back. What can I say? It's one of my favorite photos.
