    Default Illegal Runs

    I ran across this on another forum. It's an older story, but still a great read about kayaking the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. If you've ever stood at the railing and looked down and wondered....yes it's been done.


    I wonder if anybody has ever poached an illegal run around here...like kayaking across Portage Lake on a full moon night to view the glacier?

    Of course the federalies have changed their collective minds and have now deemed at least the east side of Portage Lake permissible to paddle. Hope they do the same for other such places. ----- But that was a really fun link to read through. Thanks. Pretty (in)famous kayaker names involved.

    I did raft out the end of Eagle River once. I did not know an army permit was needed to cross the base, and did not know the section below Bravo Bridge was closed, so I did it ignorantly. But it was a lot of fun, and had planned to do it again. We slowly motored through a pod of Belugas at the mouth, and continued to the Ship Creek small boat harbor for the take out.

    Always,,...
    ,,,,,,,,, Always distrust authority..
    and Always question it...
    The level of difficulty for the Grand canyon of Yellowstone was certainly elevated at least ONE (1) due to the chase by the rangers..
    that was a great story..
    When you come to a fork in the trail, take it!

    Slightly off topic and although not illegal The Grand Canyon of the Stikine is a force to be reckoned with.

    Mortar and arty fire could be an interesting aspect past the Bravo bridge. Impact zone that has been open and closed off and on over the years.
