Autumn Outing...
October 20, 2008

[Bump from 10/30/07] This fall, on my birthday, I went for a paddle on the Red Cedar a half mile from our house.

I used Grampa Craig's old wood'n'canvas canoe.

I put a rock in the bow to trim the boat more level.

I only sat down and paddled for a few minutes. For the past few years I prefer to stand and use a pole in shallow waters.

I also find that I only paddle this river in the fall and early winter. The rest of the year it just isn't pretty, or hardly paddleable. Poleable, I mean.
