As I’ve talked about since last Friday, The Gazette has been running a seven-part series on the Cedar River. Jim Slosiarek and Orlan Love. The stories, if you haven’t been following them, have been great, with strong images from Jim and Orlan’s trademark writing style.

But there’s more. On Tuesday, we had a live chat with Jim and we’re planning one for Thursday with Orlan.

And we have a complete multimedia journal of the trip posted here, including an interactive map, photos and video that give a more complete picture of their trip down the river.

We’re doing more and more with multimedia, but this is a great example of how we can take a really strong story and make it even stronger with the right elements.

What do you think of our efforts with this project? Anything that’s missing that you’d like to see?
