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.
