As a wildlife photographer, it is always pleasing to encounter someone who shares your passion for the outdoors and for the beautiful wildlife this country is blessed to have. A.J. was the perfect host and wildlife guide. He was most knowledgeable about not only the river, but the wildlife living along the river. We saw Bald Eagles so close that I hardly needed a telephoto lens. We also encountered several Osprey, a Beaver, Marmot and a Mink racing in and out of the boulders on the river. A.J. was a gracious host and took all the time we needed to capture the perfect photo.
