The guys at Freshwaters Illustrated flew me out to Oregon for their hometown screening of Hidden Rivers. It was my 7th time to view it and it just keeps getting better. The film played at Corvallis's Whiteside theater, saved by its citizens and now screens art, cult and in this case one of their own's home town boys film project. 400 folks showed up and what an enthusiastic crowd they were!
Hidden Rivers will play at about a dozen locations this November. Go to Freshwaters Illustrated and perhaps find a screening near you.
I spent 10 days in Oregon, what a wonderful adventure it was, every day. We went to Neptune, The Pacific Ocean, all kinds of Eaterys, Cider Houses and Farmer's Markets. Hunted mushrooms i was to nervous to eat and bought many varieties to cook. I even snorkeled a river and don't recall if i have ever been so cold. 40s Jeremy said. I lasted about an hour but my fingers became useless nubs. Jeremy had to peel off my wetsuit, rub me briskly with a dry towel and put my socks and shoes on! I was able to put my own britches on, fortunately for us both.
The balcony was near full too. What a great crowd giving me a wonderful welcome. I even drew winning a dozen winning numbers from the giveaway jar.
Jeremy getting ready for the presentations, speaking and film introduction. Dave gave a 10 minute talk about his photography including the recent pages in the newest National Geographic. They also showed March of the Newts from their Vimeo channel. Check this short film out. David took me to the coastal rain forest where parts were filmed and we watched my most western sunset.
The big show at a neat little theater. HIDDEN RIVERS in moving lights.
Guess who is wearing a drysuit? A warm Jeremy. A beautiful site, crystal clear with structure, big crays, dace and sculpins. I may post those some other time.
5 mils is not enough i can truly testify. I have now snorkeled in Oregon. Check. 30 so more states to go.
