Dump Island, Farm Island, and an Unnamed Creek.

Two recent paddles I went on that I have not posted about were a renewing of my normal after work paddle around Dump Island and back to the beach near the Legion Cabin and investigating a creek the Lewis and Clark Trail crosses.

The first map is of the Dump Island paddle; it is approximately 4 miles round trip and is a very good quick, evening paddle.

Next I decided to find the river side of a creek that the Lewis and Clark Trail crosses. This was another quick evening paddle ending up being 3.3 miles. I used the boat ramp where the trail widens into a gravel road on Farm Island (near the polo fields). Scruffy (my dog) had a blast running along a sandbar spooking a few geese.
A few pictures from the Farm Island/creek paddle:

  1. That one photo of your dog eyeing those geese is great. Nice post.
