This blog is about various boat and environment related topics that I care to comment on. First and foremost, this blog is about skin on frame boats, their construction and use, as well as paddle and other stuff related to skin boat use.

El Condor Pasa
It's a song title and it's an opportunity for me to trot out yet another Condor picture.
After spending 5 days at the Pinnacles in February, I went back to our local library and looked up condors. Found two books. Condor books are about as rare as condors themselves, actually more rare in our library than actual condors. I checked out the one called In Condor Country. Finished reading it today and right near the end found this quote by Ken Brower:
"When man and condor meet today, it is with a glance of mutual appraisal, each to see whether the other is yet extinct."
