|Getting ready to launch.|
|Gazing wistfully up-river towards the end of the "trough".|
|My smallie...it was bigger than it looks?|
|Don's smallie...it WAS big.|
Here are a few photos from a previous trip down the trough. The trough, a 6-mile-long gorge with limited access is a famous section of the South Branch. There is no vehicular access along this stretch so there it is a pristine float. The Potomac Eagle Railroad offers scenic trips along the gorge for those who can't or don't want to take a float trip.
