The gondolier is owner/operator Chris Sperry who runs two gondolas there.
The gondola approaches.
Chris finished out his two boats with great attention to detail.
A lot of custom-crafted wood went into each vessel.
I visited Chris at his operation in September of 2009 when I was there for the Kansas City Expedition down the Missouri River.
It was so great to see a guy take such pride in his operation, and he's not on a bad piece of water either.
