4th annual float t(r)ip

For the fourth year in a row, my fraternity brothers and I took our annual float trip the weekend after Father's Day. Here's what south-central Missouri looks like on a gorgeous summer day at 60 miles per hour.
We finally arrived at our destination — Bennett Springs State Park near Lebanon, Mo.
After setting up camp...
...James, Craig and I set off to explore our surroundings (with some refreshments, of course).

The Bennett Spring fish hatchery has been part of the Missouri State Park system since the 1920s..
Here fishy, fishy, fishy.

The hatchery stocks the river on a daily basis with approximately 350,000 to 420,000 rainbow trout annually...
...attracting roughly 800,000 anglers per year.
Saturday morning, while we were still dry.
I didn't take my camera on the water but, suffice it to say, we had a blast.
