Independence Day Yakking

Posted on Jul 8, 2017 in Day / Weekend Trips, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Dad got a kayak the other day and wanted to try it out.  I am always looking for an excuse to kayak, so we took them out over the holiday weekend!  As it turns out, this creek was also the first creek I floated with my kayak when I bought it about 10 years ago.  I can’t believe it’s been that long!

fc-1We set out fairly early and were in the water by around 9 or so. What dad will learn is that if you go kayaking with me, you will probably end up in lots of pictures. I like the pattern of the darker rocks and lighter gravel on the bottom.

fc-2There were several places I wanted a get out and explore, such as this little cave.

fc-3Floating past some pretty bluffs with some unusual orange, tan, black, and grey stripes!

fc-4Here is my little yak hanging out while I take a quick break. I haven’t had him out much over the last year or so, since baby Carter came, so I enjoy it when an opportunity presents itself!

I like parts along the river like this where the water flows fast and is relatively shallow.

It was a very nice day to be floating down the creek!
