BURL Owl sighting.

The symbol i use in some of my BURL Productions logos is an ancient indian pictograph that my brother and i spotted in the canyon of the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho when we were teen agers. This past summer Jenny Hatch of Cal Trout made that epic 100 mile rafting journey. Before the trip I told her the story of that experience for my brother and i and how the Burl Owl symbol came to be. Along her way, Jenny spotted the same cave drawing and snapped a photo of it. This is the original BURL Owl. I'm not sure what it meant to the ancient hunters but it came to be a symbol of brother hood and friendship for me and some of my oldest friends. Nice spot Jenny!

We saw that same owl on the Middle Fork Salmon in 2009. Fantastic river trip.
