Our group consisted of five canoes, two kayaks, twelve paddlers – and one Jack Russell Terrier!

One of the two active Bald Eagle nests we saw.

We were expertly led on this trip by our own HFN member Gareth Harding, and well led we were.

Gareth made a great choice as to river route site, good water flow and level, lush vegetation from water level to tree top, and a gravel bar lunch spot that even had a swimming hole in a back eddy.

Several species of bird life were seen.

I suspect everyone’s highlight was a colony of 30 to 40 Bank Swallow nest tunnels – that brought back a lot of memories of days when they were much more common

We were on the water by about 11:30 and off by 3:30 or so, lunch and swimming included.

Great day  all around, from the river, the scenery and the company.  It could not have been better.
