The Great Jordan River Exploration
My Dad (Grandpa Cannon to my kids) has a boat. Okay, it is actually more of a glorified inflatable raft, but it has proved quite seaworthy. He took Abe and Clark on a four mile explorative excursion on the Jordan River.
I LOVE this picture of Clark because he is so happy out in nature. It soothes his soul. Thank you, Dad for sharing this with Clark.
Abe had some doubt as to how navigable the Jordan River would be, but they only had to get out one time to walk around a small beaver den. Abe came home like a kid glowing about how much fun he had.
In this picture Grandpa and Clark are looking at where beavers have chewed branches. My dad majored in zoology at BYU so you can imagine how well he and Clark get along. I guess this sort of thing skips a generation.
Abe and Clark by the "SeaHawk II". I understand that my Dad bought this "boat" at Costco sort of on a whim, but I think he has had more fun with it than any retired person I know.
