Catching Up

I've been bad about posting for several months.  Just too busy.  I've been paddling a lot of whitewater with my job at Camp Merrie Woode.  But I have been doing some flatwater distance paddling, too, including an exploratory trip on the St. Marys River in Florida while it was running at 1/10 of its normal volume for the time of the year.  Pictures below:

Sometimes the clear, but tea-colored water was so shallow we had to walk our boats, and we could smell the smoke from the Everglades and Okeefenokee fires.

Lake Fairfield at 3,300 feet where I paddle.  I purchased an Epic 18X Sport at the East Coast Canoe and Kayak Festival, and I plan to paddle in the WaterTribe North Carolina Challenge (100 miles) at the end of September.
