Tally: 5 paddlers in kayaks had a great time today! The
Smith River is beautiful! One of the sites that we saw today was a
trampoline that had been converted into a raft by tying it to 50 gallon
drums. Another of the little vessels looked like a kids boat out
of Toon Town...with one paddler and one bailing (frantically).
Found out that these were Coast Guardsmen and their families on a
holiday. A side note would be that 'not a life jacket was to be
seen on any of them'. But they were having fun.
The Smith River is one of the best rivers to kayak.
Don't wait much longer. The water level drop fast.
Remember...the Smith has no dams!
The Grand Entrance of the Day was when Luanne left 172'
of skid mark on Highway 197 as she arrived at Ruby Van Deventer County
Park...scared the hell out of everyone except Luanne.
And the Grand Exit of the Day was just before take-out,
Cheryl's Skylark let her down and permitted her to gracefully enter the
Smith River while transiting the last rapid.
