Andy - here's a website for Russell's Landing - there's a link halfway down the page to some additional river photos. Perhaps you can distribute this to your e-mail list.

Hello Gail -

Thanks again for the hospitality, etc while our Scout Explorers Group canoed the St. Croix on August 19 weekend.

I have a favor to ask. I'd like to put a quick item in our newsletter, and thought the picture you have on your brochure is really neat - the one taken from the railroad grade, looking across the picnic table & down the river. Is it something that can be e-mailed so I can use it in our newsletter? Of course, I'd list your name & contact info, etc.

Subject: Check this out

This is the river guaging station at Vanceboro (our put-in). They cranked the dam gates open again on 8/14. Flow is 1500cfs. Last week it was about 1100cfs.

At 1100: Big Water. Greg spoke to some folks who floated last week from Vanceboro to Loon Bay in 5 hours (23-24 miles)!

Greg has made contact with locals re: water level. Apparently most of the rapids will be washed out, but water will be fast. We may opt to arrange for car shuttle at Little Falls, take out, go back to Vanceboro and do it again. Car shuttle will probably cost extra that way...but we have some time to fill.

Cobscook Bay State Park is only about an hour away. If we get off the river a day early, perhaps we could go there. Dramatic tides...

Attached is a rapid-fire series of mail from Greg this morning (I think he's excited).
