Brian scheduled a trip down the White River on Memorial Day. Being fairly close to home compared to most of the rivers we paddle, this is a real treat. Last year with the lack of rain at least a couple of trips were canceled on this river since the water levels were too low. It has been two years since we have been able to paddle here. I have only done the upper section, so this would be a new area for me.
A group of twenty paddlers set out on a cloudy day with temps in the low 60's. Not especially warm, but compared to some of the paddles this spring it wasn't too bad. Except for a few light showers while we were shuttling cars, the rain stayed to the south of us. We mostly stayed dry, at least those of us who didn't get in trouble with all the fallen trees.
Miles paddled today: 12.5 (+/- depending on the route actually paddled and how much backtracking we did). Year to date: 121.4.
