  1. I named the blue heron Percy the first year we went.
    I look forward to seeing Percy in a couple of weeks.

  2. Glad to put a name with the photo now:)!

  3. The one park ranger(forgot her name) is not friendly towards SUP company’s simply dropping off and picking up boards for clients. It’s not legal to accept $ on the premises but she doesn’t even allow the drop off’s…be aware if you are trying to show clients the beauty of this area.
