“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

Bad River Expedition

John and decided to go for a paddle today; Chuck couldn't make it. We decided to give the Bad River a try since it is now ice free. We ended up traveling the to the furthest point upstream I have ever been too; I was there once last spring too.

We had some interesting sites too. We had a heron staying just ahead of us for a while.

We even encountered the fabled Bad River Rapid (notice it is singular).
From 2009_03_28
We ended up covering our longest stretch of 2009... 7.5 miles and I have made it out 5 times in the month of March. And the slideshow of all the pictures I took today.
Oh yeah, here is proof that I made it this far up the Bad River before.
