Taking a break at the same campsite on Smith Lake, 2016. This is from a slightly different angle than the 1976 photo - the tree to the left of Diana in the picture is the one that had the campsite sign on it forty years ago. On this trip, we spent our last night at the foot of Five Mile Rapids. We did the final section of river a little more quickly than in 1976, since we had a car waiting at McManus Lake but had to drive to Lake Traverse to pick up the other car before heading home.
