Legend of the Snake, Frank Ewing
What do you get when a boat load of old-timer river guides and long-time locals get together on the Snake River? A boat load of tales, some small, some tall, followed by a boat load of laughs! Last Friday, August 12th, the 6th annual Legends of the Snake brought together some of the pioneers of Jackson Hole’s rafting and fishing industry. The river trip kicked off the evening, floating from Dead Man’s Bar to Moose with a lineup of Frank Ewing, John Simms, Dick Barker, Jack Dennis, John Turner, Bill Guheen, Davey Hansen, Paul Bruun, Denny Becker and more, as they took to the oars to tell their stories. The evening of river running history continued at Dornan’s with dinner & drinks… and delightful tales of the Snake River! In the photo, Frank Ewing floats the Snake, circa late 1950s.
