NATURE is our business…

….and business is good!

It’s been a challenging season, but we really enjoyed our Daytime Cruises and Tree Swallow Sunset Cruises, even with current limitations.  Eagle sighting this Fall was amazing, more than we have seen in the past.  This is great news for the rebounding population.  The tree swallows danced each evening and we were able to share the spectacle with many new and old friends.  Even with the drought conditions, there was some beautiful color for the fall foliage cruises.  Thanks to all who joined us and supported us during these crazy times. Cathy will put together a 2020 recap slideshow soon.   Let’s cross our fingers for a better 2021.  All the best, the RiverQuest crew.
