In a river of gold...

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.
