“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

Today, the governor opened the river up from the Farm Island causeway downstream. Obviously, I had to go check out what the area was like with high water. I paddled from the boat ramp down to the fingers/inlets into the interior of the island. I went up one of the inlets, noting the Lewis and Clark monument and old building. I then paddled back to the boat ramp and into the campground area. I ended the paddle in the boat ramp parking lot! Covered 4.9 miles.
