The weather seems to be improving and it has been a very strange winter. time to get out and paddle.
This will be a paddle trough Congaree National Park. It is approx. 7 miles long and has many twist and turns. This is Blackwater at its finest. Congaree is the largest remaining track of old growth bottom land forest in the US.
The weather promises to be much warmer. Forecast is for a high of 77. But the water will still be cold, so please bring a change of clothing in a drybag just in case... You never know what can happen and better to prepare. The water level is just over 6' now and anywhere between 3 and 7 will be good. If you would like to track it, here is the gauge: http://waterdata.usgs.gov/sc/nwis/uv/?site_no=02169672
We will meet at Bannister Bridge Access and unload the boats. We will then run a shuttle down to the Cedar Creek Access. Please try to be on time.
Bring along a snack, water, PFD, whistle. I have extra drybags I will bring if you would like to borrow.
