We try to ride up one of the small tributaries, but after a short time there was no progress, it became too shallow ! Loui was the only one who had the desire of the whole other team to go on such side-trips...

Unfortunately this year the sand island opposite the rocks was under water because of the high water, I would have liked to set up the camp there again, nevertheless beautiful that we have seen the rocks...

The grave of the Indian Chief Shahnyaati . He died in 1892 and was said to have had 20 wives and 100 children. Shortly before his death he said to to his wife, when I die you will see a rainbow, bury me in this place. So it happened. Until today the people here have great respect for the chief, his grave has been repaired again and again. In the old days the paddle steamer captains always blown the ship's horn to greet the Chief!

Unfortunately we had to see that the people did not prepare his grave any more, from the river it was hardly to be seen...

Rest in Peace Chief !

Nothing's changed in Circle, I'm afraid. The Lodge is decaying more and more, the coffee shop is closed and it's also very desolate otherwise, somehow I don't understand the people. They have all the opportunities, but they don't use them ...
