Today’s trip was a quick repeat of our trip on June 8th, because all the rivers in the area are on a very fast rise, and Steve missed this trip 3 weeks ago. It was and always is a beautiful trip with a few rapids in it, however, this time the water is so high that the rapids are covered over and only a few ripples were left as a fond memory of Steve and Teresa getting stranded high on the wall of rocks. I did not take a lot of pictures today, due to the recent trip, but the scenery is still gorgeous and always looks a little different.
Today’s travelers were Bill and Teresa, Steve Dunn, and me. The day was a very warm 91° with water temps a mild 71° and the river running very fast at an 8.2 foot level. The current was so fast today, all we had to do was steer and talk. We did take some nice stops on the very few sandbars that did exist and really saw very little wildlife today—just two Eagles. We finished the 12.7 mile trip in 3hours and 45 minutes which included over an hour of stopped time – to enjoy the day. Our average speed with very little stroke power was 4.3 mph, so if you were not with us—you missed a great day.
