“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
"I’m an adventuring river rat at heart. Put me on a floating piece of driftwood and I’m happy." ~ Christina Glauner

Second March Paddle
The weather gods sure have been fickle lately. The forecast for Friday was mid 40s but John and I were lucky to have 30 degrees. This weekend was forecast to be much colder and snowing, but today was sunny and the high was 53 according to NOAA. John and I met at the causeway at 2:30 PM and began to paddle down stream along La Framboise Island. On the return trip we came across Chuck, who couldn't make it at 2:30 PM. We then all headed back to the causeway. John and I had about 4.5 miles and Chuck was close to 1.5 miles. Some pictures below.
