RICHARD HALLMAN “This is Dan Gavere on the Hood River during a mid-May snow melt runoff. I’m sure there have been many captions with the tag line “Suspended Animation,” but this truly fits the scene. Dan had been scouting and running the Hood River for some time. After running the rapid in the background, he turned the board up the middle river eddy to get a closer look at the rapid in the foreground. As he paused, my eyes played tricks on me because everything was in motion except for Dan, the rocks, and the leaves on the trees.” –Richard
