Kottwitz’s Calf Canoeing

On March 14, National Ag Day, our friends and neighbors Boe and Jennifer Kottwitz, as well as their daughter Abby and my husband Boe, canoed their calves to dry ground. They were previously between where the rising Cheyenne River and Mule Creek converge, and while a few of the calves crossed Mule Creek of their own accord, many were spared frigid water temperatures by the Kottwitz’s efforts. I’ll let these photos tell the story far better than I could, but I will say, it’s a good thing Abby took an interest in canoeing a few years ago!
Boe is walking into the very point where the creek and the river meet. The amount of water that pours through from this point on is quite impressive.
