This beautiful ponderosa pine was a last-minute donation from Dave Konz (K-Diamond-K Guest Ranch), who literally dumped her off at the Okanogan Family Faire, in Tonasket, WA. This was my second "Barter Faire", and I was a featured artist in their first-ever "Artisan's Row!" Over the four-day event, several hundred people helped me carve about 1000 lbs off her! Afterwards, I took her back to Curlew Lake Canoe Camp, where I had been working on The Big Pine (another canoe). The snow came in shortly after, and I had to leave the canoes unfinished for the Winter. In the Fall of 2014, I reunited with her, in Republic, WA. Dave dropped her of, again, and I started choppin' at the Eagle Track Raceway! About two weeks later, We moved back up to the Barter Faire, for more choppin'. When the fair was over, the Mayor of Tonasket invited me to finish her at Founder's Park, right downtown! The Alternative School came down, and chopped a little, while I was there. Quill Hyde let me do the finishing touches at the Hyde-Made metal shop. Upon completion, I paddled the Okanogan River, from Tonasket to Brewster, to Christen her. She was awesome on the water, and got to greet the Columbia River! She is now on display at The Yellowstone Gateway Museum, in Livingston, Montana! Canoe! Canoe!
