Friday & Saturday: It's another Book Blast! Free book days at Amazon for Gallagher's Pride!

The Wild Mile - Bigfork, Montana

Above image ©MK McClintock: The Swan River begins in the Mission Mountains at Gray Wolf Lake and continues north to Swan Lake. Then it goes west and is impounded by a dam before emptying into Bigfork Bay and the town of Bigfork, where it enters Flathead Lake. Each year the area is host to the Bigfork Whitewater Festival or Wild Mile. The Bigfork Whitewater Festival involves international kayak racing on the 'Wild Mile' of the Swan River that runs through Bigfork. At the height of spring runoff, the 'Wild Mile' is considered a Class V whitewater. The event draws over 200 competitors along with several thousand spectators. There are festivities running throughout the weekend. (http://visitmt.com/listing/categories_NET/MoreInfo.aspx?IDRRecordID=8934&siteid=1)
