Scott Imsland, mourning the loss of the river in 1981

Location: Camp 9 Put-in
Status: Live River

Date: April 18, 1981

Scott Imsland guided for ARTA from the mid 1960’s in California, then Idaho, and ending in Grand Canyon from 1972-1987 for AZRA.  Scott writes:  “With one last run on the Stan in 1981 with friend Paul Begovac, I felt it necessary to bring my sax on that run as a memorial tribute.  I played Amazing Grace and some melodies from my heart and soul.  In that moment, I blew the Stan up to the heavens where others could enjoy the good times she provided us.  We joined Gar Dubois on the Parrott’s Ferry Bridge at take out and said our goodbyes and shared our good times together, cave exploring and rafting and all the good friends we made.”  Image was taken just below main Camp Nine put in, below Cadillac Charlie rapid (in background) – they ran for three days, finishing in the flooding waters above Parrott’s Ferry Bridge.
