New River with Allison and Beth Ann

New River with Allison and Beth Ann

The day before the July 4 holiday in 2001, I (Ranger Bob) took a paddling trip on the New River with my daughter Allison and her friend Beth Ann Dellinger. It was a pleasant day with a nice lunch along the way.


We had mostly easy paddling. One time just before a bridge,where we had to eddy out and exit the river, to cross over the bridge, the current pushed us into the briars on the left side of the river. Allison and Beth Ann got a little bit scratched, but they were big girls and did not complain.

A good time was had by all.
