Today was the day to try out our new rubber raft. Just a few miles from our campsite is Hebgen Lake which looked like a safe place to try it out. The weather was a little cloudy at first but cleared off and ended up being a very nice day. We were on the water for about two and a half hours and paddled up the shore about 3/4 miles and back. All in all we were very pleased with the raft and with a few minor adjustments it will work fine. Plan to take it out again on St Mary Lake in Glacier.
Tomorrow we move a few miles north the the Big Sky area just south of Bozeman.
