Went for a river trip and got goosed!

Sandy Draus | Green River, Utah

I’m always in the sweep boat, so last to leave…Looked out the boat and saw a Canadian Goose. We took off, after a bit, looked again and he was still there. He then tapped on the side of my boat, I looked at him and said “I don’t talk goose”. He tapped again and I received a vision of picking him up…which I did…leaned over the side and scooped him up, put him on the cooler between myself and raft partner. HE loved it. Stretched out his wings and shook off the water, settled in and watched the world go by. He stayed with us for 4 1/2 days. Never begged for food and slept outside someone’s tent each night. Stayed until we took at the Gates of Lodore. It was FULL of people. He just wandered around and visited everyone. When the next group took off down river, he followed them on. The MOST INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE I HAVE EVER HAD!
