Floating Eggleston to Ripplemead and the New Huck Finn

IMG_4886On an Angler Survey with the DGIF on the New River: Even in late summer with the sycamores crowding the riverbank like spectators on the bends, a weary, dusty yellow and the karstic cliffs above them the color of old teeth and full of caves and dripping pines and, it has been recently discovered, by delighted UWV botanists, an endemic lichen called frosted rock tripe, you’d still say the New is green.
I’ll write more about this trip with DGIF fisheries biologist, J. Copeland.
