A New Year TomorrowPosted Saturday, December 31, 2011, at 9:17 PM
Taken on Salmon River between Riggins and French Creek (Short's Bar and Long/Island Bar) on February 8, 2010
From US Army Corps of Engineers research.
Russ Henderson, who took this picture, said: "The circle is turning clock wise from the current flowing downstream from the right. By the next day, it had worn the ice hook off to the left and had gone down stream and broken up. It must have been at least one hundred feet in diameter (NOTE: the telephone pole above and LEFT of the circle but RIGHT of the small tree. *)."
Here's hoping the extra day in 2012 (Feb. 29th) helps us move toward the GREATNESS of those bygone days....
The devil made me do it :-)

I was born September 17, 1949 in Caldwell, Idaho. Like Idaho's climate, I have a dry sense of humor. It may be a result of faulty genetics, but I come from sturdy stock. My great grandfather once served as a postmaster right on the line between Camas and Elmore Counties and is buried on what was once his land. According to research my only sibling has done, we generally agree that he started his westward trek in Indiana sometime after 1838 and died of pneumonia in 1911. If Google earth is correct, there are at least 2.5 million average steps between Ripley County, Indiana and his gravesite.
