Day 1: Pere Marquette River - Fisher to Bowman Bridge
The Paddlers Rendezvous is held at Coolwater on the Pine campground on the last weekend of September. Kayak clubs from across Michigan, Indiana, and Ohio gather for an end of the season paddle. It works out perfectly for me as I have to use my vacation time by the first of October, and this year I had a full week left. That gave me three days to work around the house, and still be able to make it up for the Thursday early-bird paddle.
Miles paddled today: 12.6. Year to date: 223.1.
