We had a lot of put-in options. We had an island and two dams to choose from so we go north and jump in about 100 feet from the van.
We get some nice cliffs full of birds living in small pockets.
This little dragon fly or clones of him followed us on and off for the entire trip.
My wife is goofing off, we are not at the end and she has no reason to celebrate.
At one time 15 grain mills used the river for power. This is the only one we saw. Entry was possible but the fast current made landing mixed and we said we'd come back in winter.
The end of more Class 1. We pass about 8 such rapids.
How can you pass natural arches. I had to take a picture.
We get the bikes but forget all kinds of supplies in the boats but we are not going back into the skeeters and we don't say anything about it.
We cross the river and turn right and follow the crappy road for 12 miles and it's into the wind.
Kristen is on her new Zuringo thanks to Jay over at Hollywood Cycles.
It's a very nice paddle that is easy and you see very little development with the exception of a short stretch of road and a house or two. The Cannon is only 30 minutes from the cities and that's probably why it's so popular but then it's also very good. It's easily better then the Lower Saint Croix.
