A group of 11 guests stayed with us night before last as part of their hike down the Rogue River Trail. They enjoyed sitting on our front porch, visiting, catching up on reading, sharing stories, and going for short walks (to the Rogue River and to Foster Bar).
Two groups of the guests decided that they wanted to get out on the water for a boat ride and story telling session with Ernie Rutledge. Ernie runs a “Rogue River Long Boat” that he designed and built. This design was created just for its use on the Rogue. Ernie is the only person who still runs that style of boat.
