Yes, when I did my stint as an AFR on Lows in the early 90s, sometimes I drove my 4Runner in that way and parked near the gate at the upper dam.

Great shot from 18! I have seen some great sunsets from there too. One summer I worked as an ASF on Lows and was able to camp on top of Gooseneck Island - they were even better from up there. The bog...

One of my favorite sites! How was the paddle in with the low water level below the upper dam?

If the carry is unfamiliar and long, I like to leap frog (split) it. I carry my gear roughly half way, leave it and go back for the canoe. Then I do the same thing to the end of the carry.

I took another (closer) look at the slide of the lodge - it says October 1983, not '93. Some of the others (that have dates) are from 1988.

I typically carried three lenses: a standard 18-55mm, a wide angle and 300mm. I think you are right, it is more likely a zoom shot rather than from one of the float plane trips I took over the Five...
