January Paddle

I've not posted anything in a while, but thought I would get back in the groove with a post about paddling today.

Couldn't get Zack to come today.  He said it was winter and he doesn't paddle when it's cold.  Never mind that he has had a great time when we've had to break ice or that it was unseasonably warm today.  Regardless, it was just two of us today.

We took a short trip on the Meramec River.  It was nice and peaceful.  The sun was a bear early due to the angle.  Several geese and ducks greeted us shortly after the put-in.

Not the best of places to take out, but we got ashore and hauled the boats up the hill.  Someone else was backing in with a long racing boat.  Asked if we were training for the MR340.  The race seems interesting, but I don't think I want to be in a boat that much.  I like to enjoy paddling.

It was a great day to be on the river.
