Three Rivers’ cleaning van is slowly beginning to see the light of day, but is still stuck in the snow.

The snow is melting. This week we’ve seen blue sky, and new grass on the field, a tulip blooming here and there, and even a few discarded beer cans have been exposed, (you didn’t think I was only going to report butterflies and rainbows did you!) The change is coming, as we get out and about up here along the river a lighter weight jacket is ok, our mud boots instead of our winter pac’s, and even wear just two layers of thermal shirts instead of three.
The upriver folks are starting to survey the damages of winter in hopes to start repairs. My news sources from Syringa are Becky Allen-Brotnov and Lorraine Smith; they are both positive people, and good friends. The community of Syrjnga will be alive with activity soon. River Dance Lodge and ROW opens in a few weeks, and at Jackson’s the pace is already picking up. We are all excited about the 2017 season. Cougar hunters, spring bear hunters, white-water rafting, and even horn hunters!
In Lowell, Marty and Dani Smith at Three Rivers Rafting are lining up their trips and calling on their guides to show up early because reservations are up, just like the river.
The CV junior high girls had a volleyball tournament against Kamiah last week and did very well. Miss Martha and Miss Ella played great; two Lowell residents that will be fun to watch as they go through high school sports, and next comes track! And as I always say, “run faster than you can!”
Even with 40-degree weather and blue skies, it will be a while before Three Rivers Cabin clean van will be ready for action!
