A canoe trip along the North Platte River reveals a quintessential Wyoming landscape. The stream cuts through bluffs and sagebrush-covered hills. In this dry landscape, the Platte's lush, riparian forest of cottonwoods is a magnet for wildlife and a birder's paradise. Kingfishers, herons, sharp-billed common merganser ducks, Western meadowlarks, bluebirds and swallows by the hundreds can be seen.
