“Spend as much time as possible on mountains, in small boats, or otherwise out in the weather; if you never get wet, cold, exhausted or scared, you won’t properly appreciate being dry, warm, rested and safe.” ~ Peter Jay

3 for 3 for the 3rd Month

As I pointed out to John and Chuck earlier, I paddled once in January, twice in February, and today I made it three times for March. John informed me that I could not go out in March again. But if the temperatures hold, the pattern WILL break. Today, John and I met at the causeway at 2:30 and paddled upstream past the edge of town and just beyond an island that sits upstream of the bridges. The dam must have been releasing water because the return trip was much quicker. We did notice a 10 degree drop in temperature alongside the aforementioned island. Otherwise, not too much to mention. Steamboat park, alongside the river, seemed to be quite bustling during the afternoon. It is looking spring is here now!
